  1. hello sir,
    i would like to ask for any assistance in our embassy regarding the problem that our CEO is forcing us to work beyond our contract. we even spoke to legal affairs and HR regarding this matter but they are supporting the decision of the manager. please kindly help us regarding this. we have three years contract and the finish date will be after three weeks.thank you

    • Maaari pong humingi ng palugit ang employer na may rason, katulad ng looking for your replacement, immediate needs to finish a certain project or production at kailangan ka ng employer, or any justifiable reason. Ito ay dapat may kasulatang nakasaad ang period duration. Kung lalagpas or humingi uli ng palugit ang employer, may karapatan na po kayong hindi sang-ayonan ito. Kung magpumilit ang employer, puwede po kayong magreklamo sa Saudi Labor Office.

    • John,

      In KSA sponsorship system, our employer are the one’s keeping our passports, so it means hawak nila ang alas at nasa kanila ang pasiya. Though you have the right to stop work based on your contract but your employer also have the right to postpone your vacation for a period of 90 days as per SLL or kung ano ang nakalagay sa iyong kontrata. Usually in KSA, workers will stop work one day before flight schedule (vacation or exit).

      Regards.

    • Ben,

      Medyo malayo layo ang location mo pero part ka ng Eastern REgion. Pakitawaga itong numero ng POLO Eastern Region 03 8995714 or 0501269742. Hanapin nyo po si Labor Attached Adam Musa or kung sino ang makasagot sa phone, iparating mo sa kanila ang iyong hinaing tungkol sa iyong employer. Tanongin mo na rin kung saan sila located at mas maganda kung pasyalan mo ang ating POLO sa Eastern REgion at kausapin sila ng personal kung paano magsampa ng reklamo sa iyong employer.

      Bong
