Small World


 

I can’t find the right words to say when I read my daughters’ message in my Cbox for the reason that I am not sure if I can go home in time of Christmas. Not certain, because the company policy states that an employee can avail his vacation entitlement or can go home for good (exit) based on the day he arrived from his last vacation.

 

My contract ends November of this year but since the nature of my contract is “unspecified“, I don’t have any other choice but to follow the rules.  Art. 72 of Saudi Labor Law states, “A labor contract concluded for a specified period shall terminate upon the expiry of its term. If both parties continue to enforce the contract thereafter, it shall be considered renewed for an unspecified period.”

 

Back to my daughters’ message, in order not to let her down I found the words “I will let you know” meaning no promises and no exact date. Kids nowadays are very sensitive, if you promised anything they would not forget it and you must fulfill that promise too.

 

Because her message is about exams at school, then I should have to say something about it. When I am about to mention her school I forgot the meaning of “E” from the acronym STEC. Then I started to search and got the meaning of STEC (Science and Technology Education Center). Huh!

 

But I found something more interesting in my search – a blog “Raising Boys” from a mother whose kids are currently studying in the same school my daughter was and possibly Dylan and Angel are classmates too.

 

I thought to myself – what a small world. Not only that! Her husband is one of my favorite links “Leon Kilat“. 

 

To:  Max and Marlen Limpag, nice meeting you-both in the world of Blogosphere. I’m sure we will be seeing each other in person very soon.

  1. Sir,magandang gabi po!
    Ano po ba ang maganda naming gawin? Heto po yung aming proplema,bali apat po kaming mga pinoy nurses na nagtatrabaho dito sa KSA! Patapos na po ang aming 2taong kontrata ngayong darating na June 23,2010.Nakapagbigay na po kami ng 2-months notice na nagsasabing ayaw na po naming i renew yung aming kontrata at sakali ay kumuha na siya ng aming magiging kapalit dahil nga malapit na kaming umuwi,ngunit ang sabi lang ng aming employer ay 2 lang ang pwedeng umuwi at ang ibig sabihin ay,ang aking kasamahan at ako ay hindi pauuwiin sa kadahilanang kami ay nakapasa ng exam para sa Saudi Council!,at sa halip,siya ay nagalit sa amin at baka daw hindi na niya ibigay sa amin ang aming sahod ngayong buwan ng Marso..Tanong lang po,ano po ba ang mabuting naming gawin upang kami ay makauwi ng walang magiging problema sakaling kami ay bumalik?, 2.Bakit po sabi sa amin may pipirmahan kaming kontrata sakaling kami ay dumating dito,bakit po kami wala? Tanging yung kontrata lamang na galing sa agency namin ang tangi naming hawak ngayon,sapat na po ba yun bilang matibay na ebidensya sakaling kami ay humingi ng tulong mula sa Philippine Embassy?,plz..p0! Pakisagot lang po ung problema namin..thnx!

    • hindi makatarungan kung hindi niya ibigay ang inyong sahod dahil lamang mga dahilan na nabinggit mo. tama ang ginawa ninyo na nag sumiteng notice not to renew your contract sa inyong employer. sana naman meron kayong kopya at tatak kung kailan ito na receive para ebidensya na kayo talaga ay may notice. karamihan sa mga ofw dito sa saudi ay may bagong kontrata pagdating dito. dahil kayo ay walang bagong pinirmahan na kontrata ng dumating kayo, ibig sabihin isang legal na dokumento lang ang hawak ninyo. iyan ang dalhin ninyo sa polo/embassy.

      dapat lang na humingi kayo ng tulong sa ating polo para maayos ang lahat. karapatan ninyo ang hindi pag renew ng kontrata kung ayaw na ninyo.
