Does your job take a toll on you for working overtime? And have you, or someone you know has been assaulted while on vacation and wants to report it? Ahmed Odeh gets us all the honest legal answers in real-time for this week’s episode of #LEGALISH.

This Week’s Questions:

  1. “Hello, I have received a job offer letter, but I have my own visa under my friend's company. If I signed the letter and decided to leave later, do I have to serve a notice period? The offer letter does mention that I should give a notice. What legal actions can be taken against me if I leave without that notice?”
  2. “A friend of mine got sexually assaulted while on vacation in the Maldives. The hotel made her sign an NDA in order for her to leave the island. I know it's a long shot. But does she have any legal action that she can take in Dubai against the hotel?”
  3. “What is the legal limit for working hours in Dubai? Do companies have to pay overtime by law? And if so, why does it seem like it's not common practice?”

Send your questions to hello@dukkanmedia.com or slide in our DMs, and we promise to keep it anonymous.
