    E183: Legal-ish #10 (With Ahmed Odeh)

    We're back again with Ahmed Odeh, Lawyer and Managing Partner at MIO Law Firm. Tune in with us to get up to date on legal news and insights and have your questions answered every week.

    In this episode:
    Dubai-listed contractor Arabtec ARTC.DU has terminated thousands of workers again in recent weeks, sources said, as the construction firm prepares for liquidation after the coronavirus pandemic deepened its financial woes. Full details in the link here.
    Arabtec may struggle to meet the end of November deadline set by shareholders to formally submit liquidation plans to a court. More details in the link here.
    As the Dubai-listed contractor Arabtec is preparing for liquidation after the coronavirus pandemic deepened its financial woes, necessary legal procedures have been taken to guarantee the rights and dues of its staff. More details in the link here.

    Show Notes:

    1. Liquidation: The process by which a company that has reached the end of its life is formally closed down and its assets realized (converted into cash).
    2. End of Service Gratuity: A benefit payment for employees when they resign from their work or when their job contract ends.
    3. Lease Agreement: A legal contract specifying the terms under which one party agrees to rent property from another party for a specified period of time.
    4. DHA: Short for Dubai Health Authority.


    Questions:
    We've moved into a rented villa, and the company that my landlord hired to maintain the work has not done anything at all. The main door locks don't work, amongst other things. There have been a number of messages where they admit that they're in the wrong. What is the correct course of action renters like me can take?
    I went for some Botox at a place that seemed reputable. However, I began to see some terrible side effects. I went to the emergency and they said that the plastic surgeon has used a low quality Botox. What are my rights?
    I seek your insight into the problem I'm facing right now, we haven't been paid our salaries for three months, we're a team of six to seven people. And recently, we got to know that our employer has fled the country. He hasn't communicated anything to us. And we got to know about this from our boss. We are a small team, and the salaries delay has been going on since the start of 2020. And so we had salary cuts in March as a result of COVID. But then it's the situation deteriorated that we're still going to office, but there's no pay. And some projects are still continuing, but we're not actually getting compensated. I'm thinking of going to the ministry but concerned that if I go to the ministry, it will affect future job prospects or will affect my position altogether in the UAE. So, what can we do?

    If you’ve got any, you could either send us an email to hello@dukkanmedia.com or slide in our DMs, and we promise to keep it anonymous. Check out the episode on your favorite podcasting platform.

This means a trusted third party such as Escrow.com will secure the funds in a trust account. The funds will be disbursed to the merchant after they have fulfilled the escrow agreement. If the merchant fails to deliver their obligation, then the funds are returned to the buyer.

    Questions:
    I am writing in regards to recover my 160,000 AED from a person in Dubai. I had transferred her the amount through my bank account, so I have the proof. Also I have WhatsApp messages from her admitting that she owes me the amount. I am currently working in Bahrain and can visit Dubai anytime. This lady had given me 3 checks for the amount, which I am yet to bounce as she is constantly telling me that she has no money at the moment. Kindly tell me how should I proceed on the same.
    Here is my case, I buy one bedroom apartment in Ajman with one company on five years installment, which will be finish in coming August 2021. Apartment should be handed over in Jan 2018, but still incomplete, I am paying continuously in Escrow account and now this case is under Department of Land and Real State Regulation Ajman. Is there any way to get my money back from this contractor? Please advice.
    Our apartment has a gym and pool that should be properly maintained according to our lease. Gyms were permitted to open in June, ours opened in September. Pools were permitted to open in August and ours is still not open. Can I request a rent deduction from these months that I am unable to use apartment facilities that are referenced in my lease. Please let me know.

    Questions:
    My boss has been making rude advances towards me. And I recorded the conversation last week where he said some inappropriate things. My friend told me that I'm not allowed to record people without their permission. So what can I do?
    I found some photographs of my wife in a compromising position with another man. It was a relationship she had in her country before she got married to me. Can I file for a divorce based on these photographs? And can I file a criminal case against her in the UAE, even though the incident took place in another country?
    I have been on unpaid leave for the past six months. It was initially for three months, but it was extended for another three months until September 30th, 2020. The employer's decision was sudden, however, keeping in mind with COVID-19 I had to accept it because everyone it is going through difficult times. However, I am seven months pregnant and due to deliver on November 12th, 2020. Although my employer is yet to confirm the status of my job, I've been informed by my colleagues that my employment might be terminated. My colleagues who are on a reduced salary since March 2020 have started receiving their full salary now, but I hasn't received anything. So what can I do? What legal avenues can I pursue?

    Question:
    I'm an engineer working with a private company in Dubai for the last seven years, and for the past eight months, I've been going through some mental health issues, and I'm seeking some treatment. My company knows about this treatment, because I was citing mental health issues on several occasions where I needed to take leave. Now, due to the COVID-19 situation and the uncertainties surrounding the crisis, I am under severe stress and anxiety and it affected my work negatively. Last week, my company terminated my services. So the question is, is it illegal is or is it legal to fire an employee who has mental health issues? Do I have the legal right to keep my job as long as I am capable of delivering work requirements?
