Article 132: UAE Labor Law

Article 132 of the UAE Labour Law states: “A worker who has completed a period of one or more years of continuous service shall be entitled to severance pay on the termination of his employment. The days of absence from work without pay shall not be included in calculating the period of service. The severance pay shall be calculated as follows: 21 days’ remuneration for each year of the first five years of service, and 30 days’ remuneration for each additional year of service provided that the aggregate amount of severance pay shall not exceed two years’ remuneration.”

Therefore, the questioner is entitled to receive three months’ salary as a compensation from his employer because it was the latter who broke the limited contract.

As per the Dubai Supreme Court, the questioner is entitled to an air ticket only if he going back home and not going to join a new employer.
