absconding case due to late issuance of visa should I pay for the penalty?
Hi there! please help me. I have a friend who transfer to a new company. When he left he did all the necessary documents and settlements. He had final settlement of 45 days of his salary and get his visa cancelled. When he got the visa cancellation he submitted it to his new employer and he even had their emails of communicating about his transfer. His visa was cancelled Nov. 10, 2009 and he also started reporting to new employer. According to cancellation he must exit the country on Dec 9 that is the 1 month grace period of stay. But he only get new visa frm his new company last Feb 2 2010. When he brought the paper to his previous company to withdraw his passport its too late because they have sent it to jafza for absconding case. Now he paid from his own salary first the amount of 1600 AED claimed by the prev company and now again 1800 AED for the release of his passport in JAFZA. Does an employee should pay all this expense when he has been consistently asking them about the new visa and he get only the reason of being denied from the first application of his visa.please help my friend...
