I am a Project Engineer by profession working for an MNC in UAE . The purpose for writing this email is to understand what could be the possibilities of winning a case which I am weighing to lodge against my company .
I have a company contract which is registered in Dubai but my visa is of Abu Dhabi( visa of Sister company registered in Abu Dhabi ) as we give services to Oil and Gas companies which requires Visa of Abu Dhabi .
Now the concern is I was told that I would be paid AED 12,000 as inscribed in the UAE labor contract as a minimum wage for Attested Degree Engineer but they had let me to sign a Contract in Dubai company letter head which is less than Labor contract value . It has been almost 17 months since I joined them and they are not respecting their words and every time I tell them to pay my dues they say that you would be paid arrear which I feel they wont be paying .
I have already resigned last November but they are not accepting my resignation nor are they paying my dues . I am feeling cheated and no more want to continue but at the same time I want to get all my dues as those are my hard earned money , will you please help me understanding the complications which I would face if I file a case in ministry of labor . The company is not a local company and its quite new in Abu Dhabi . It has started its operation in 2013 only .
Waiting for your positive response .
