Default Cost of Legal Representation

Has anyone been through the whole process of an arbitrary dismissal dispute?

I spoke with a legal consultant and he is quite sure about my case falling under arbitrary dismissal....

The employer would only pay one month basic as a redundancy compensation on top of the 3 months notice period...

As I am leaving UAE, i won't be able to attend any court meetings and etc if i decide to open a case against them....

I will have to hire a legal representation locally to act on my behalf.

Don't know if it is really worth the fight for a potential compensation of 50-60K AED..

Can anyone shed a light of how much it would cost for having a legal representation going on court and how long it would take?

Hi,
In my time in the Middle East (since 1984) - I have met many people that have taken employers to court - but never met one that had a successful result and actually got the money awarded to them.
Their court cases took a few years and even then - they did not get the monies owed to them.
There must be some winners - I have just never met one!
Cheers
Steve

Same observation as Steve, and I am here since 1988. But even if the court would decide in your advantage, you you may still not receive anything... they can stretch it forever.
