Labour ban

I have been working with a chemical company in Jebel Ali outside the free zone since August 2010 on a limited contract of three years. Now I have a good offer from a lubricant company at the Jebel Ali Free Zone. As per my contract, if I wish to terminate my contract I have to give one month notice, but the general manager asked me to give 45 days notice. Is it right? My new employer wants me to join as soon as possible. Will I be liable for a labour ban if I move from a no-free zone to a free zone? Do I have to pay for my visa expenses for the remaining months?

Maternity leave

I work in a private company here. I am currently pregnant and want to travel to Canada for my delivery as I hold an immigrant Canadian card. I asked my employer of the possibility of allowing me to take unpaid leave before my maternity to travel. As you know, airlines will allow me to travel only till my 8th month. The management is still deciding on that subject. What are my rights? Please, advise.
