Fired staff seeks Dh214,200 from UAE firm
She used to draw a monthly salary of Dh13,000, which was cut by Dh1,300 from March, following the Covid-19 pandemic.
An Emirati deputy manager with a private company has approached the Ras Al Khaimah Courts, seeking Dh214,200 as labour entitlements.
She requested the court to order her ex-employer to pay her pending six-month salary, along with annual leave balance and compensation against notice period and arbitrary dismissal.
She added that she used to draw a monthly salary of Dh13,000, which was cut by Dh1,300 from March, following the Covid-19 pandemic. However, her service was terminated in April.
Later, the company retained all the laid off employees except her. The company refused to let her return to work without any explanation or notice period.
The firm even refused to settle the litigation in an amicable way when it was first heard by the concerned labour office.
In her pleading, she requested the court to order the company to reappoint her, and pay her all the dues, along with a proper compensation against her arbitrary dismissal.
The court ordered adjournment of the case until further notice to issue its ruling.
