As per law you have to send a non-renewal letter 1 month before the labour contract expiry and should stop working once the contract finishes .no need to work until the date of visa expiry because the visa is a valid document for a stay in UAE.Visit nearest Tasheel for further advice.

It’s ok.  It’s u r right to resign… You have 30 days grace period…after visa expiry… So u can complete u r notice period… U can work… With the same employer till you complete the notice period…

Since u submitted your resignation … Now u just need to serve your notice period…. Keep all proof of resignation submission… And after completion of notice period u r visa to be cancelled by the company… Exit the country and come back on new visa.. If they don’t cancel your visa on completion of notice period… Send them a reminder email and next day wait for response.. If no response just proceed with tasheel… And labor case…. If you have new employer ready to employ u talk to him about these issues and in your first discussion take a work permit from labour court and join the new company…. Now its time to teach the some of inhumam employers how to respect their employees… There will be some minor hickups … No need lawyer for labour case… Not at All expensive to fight a labour case… Just u need support of new employer and own patience…. Just keep all your important documents handy.
