EMPLOYEES WHO ARE FORCED TO WORK UNDER A VISIT VISA


Any employee must have a work permit and it is the employer’s obligation to provide the
necessary work permits. Very often, employees on visit visa do not report the employer
for not processing their employment visa for fear of termination. However, the employee
must understand that their failure to report the situation to the authorities may make them
just as culpable of violating labour laws.
The UAE Labour Law and ministerial decrees provide substantial forms of protection for
employees in the UAE. Any employee has the right to file a complaint at the Labour
Department in the Ministry of Labour in relation to any conflict with his employer.
Employers can be subject to severe punishment in case of non-compliance with the
labour laws. The employee has the right to complain about the organization even though
he is working on a visit visa. Any evidence is sufficient to prove that he is working for the
organization.
