I am working with one of the company in Abu Dhabi on unlimited contract basis.
As per the company offer which they sent and I accepted shows 3 months as notice period for both the parties. But, the contract which I signed mentions that the notice period shall be as per the company rules and UAE labour law. Now, company general rules says one month notice period.
I have submitted my resignation on 9th October, 2011 asking to release me by 10th November, 2011 (i.e. One Month Notice Period Given To Employer). Now, Employer HR and Administration is forcing me serve notice period of three months (as stated in offer) and not releasing me before 8th January, 2011.
What is the provision as per UAE labour law?
If Artical 117 can be applied or no?
Can I get release in one month based on above mentioned facts?
Can I also use Article 119 of Indemnity for the shortfall of Notice Period?
Thanks and Regards.
