The Law and You

Arab News August 5th

A question from N.M.J. In the new labor law, is there any specific article that obliges the employer to pay for the iqama, work permit, and exit/re-entry visa for their employees?

The answer Nothing has changed in this regard in the new law. Employers are required to pay for the following expenses: airfare, including annual leave airfare, medical treatment, and visa and iqama costs. Employees may forfeit any of these rights if they choose, but that must be outlined in a contract. Otherwise the law stands.

Excuse me but.... My company hasn't paid us medical insurance for over a year so thats a pile of bullshit.
