Cancellation of visa and labour contract when appeal verdict is pending

Hello Sir/ Madam,

I worked as an IT Engineer in a company in Dubai. I had a labour case and was transferred to Dubai Courts. The judgment which was passed from the Dubai Court of First Instance was in my favour but my employer has gone for an appeal. I would like to know if I can cancel my labour contract and my visa, I currently have an offer from a freezone company and they are just waiting for my visa cancellation, I am jobless for the past 5 months and am having real problems to make meets end. I do not know if this is the right platform to ask this question, I was doing a search and came across your website. It would be really helpful if you could give me an answer to this.

Regards

    Your labour contract and visa can be cancelled while your labour case is pending in the Court. You may approach your employer for cancellation failing which you may approach the Ministry of Labour and Emigration and produce proof of the court case and they will cancel your work permit and visa.

    Hi Sir / Madam,
    My sponsor is holding my passport after cancellation of my labour card & I’m awaiting for final emmigration cancellation in the passport.
    Now sponsor is not releasing passport and he want to file some cases against me to put me under trouble.
    Please let me know the possibility of the company to file a new case against me after cancellation of my visa from Ministry of Labour.
    is there is any legal validity for this?

    regards
    SJ

    I am under the sponsorship of a company in Dubai working as showel operator. My daughter is also under my sponsorship (Studying in RAK), my wife under the sponsorship of a freezone company in RAK.I have been under the sponsorship of this company since last 5+ years. Company closed and owner absconded after my visa renewal. My 4 months salary was pending when the company closed. I have filed a case with labour, then after 1+years, this month I got judgement in my favour and received the photocopy of salary settlement cheque.I have to cancel my visa to get the money. I could not cancel the visa and work card from the closed company as there was no body in the company. Now the court officials informed that I can only change my job to Emigration Visa, other wise one year ban will be imposed. I am not getting job in Freezone Company. I have verbal job offer from a labour visa company in RAK. Please suggest me a way so that I can lift this ban ? I cannot leave my daughter and wife in UAE alone.

    I ve been terminated from my company and will have a case against them next week because in the MOL hearing they start lying and said they can prove that I need nothing from them.
    however I found my dream job in a multinational company during this week and my job will be on site (im an engineer).
    1- can i cancel my visa and work in the new job while the case is ongoing?
    2- hence i will be working in a remote site what will happen if i coudnt attend the court hearing?
    3- I still have to apply for the case in the court as the MOL told me to come get your report this week. can I just ignore it or drop the case to cancel my visa and start my new job?
