Labour Ban which is major fear for every employee before year 2016 is turned down after implementation of contract based labour system in UAE from year 2016. Now anyone can change job in limited contract just by completing his contract, ones contract is ended employee is free to change job but still those who breaks the contract have to compensate the employer for remaining period of time, unless the reasons are those given in article 121 of uae labor laws.
While unlimited contract holders can terminate or resign the job at any time giving a notice prior to 30 days and than free to get a new job. Well unlimited contract holder too get in trouble in case of they were not professional skill holder for example sanitary worker in gov sector he cannot run away from job.
