Things To Remember Before You Resign

  • Plan ahead of time. Notice period is mandatory. A minimum of 30 days is needed to notify your employer and prepare for your separation. You may choose not to follow the notice period but you need to pay the equivalent amount of 30 days to your employer.
  • If you don’t serve the notice period, you will be banned from working again in UAE.
  • Leave your work courteously. Never end your contract in bad terms because this can affect your future employment to a new company.
  • Please indicate your reason for ending your contract with your employer, you may write it down and print a hard copy or send through email.
  • Expect a negotiation between you and your employer. There are times that your employer would negotiate with you to make you stay. Once you’ve handed your resignation letter, some employers will offer something better just to keep you in their company.
  • Understand how gratuity pay works. This depends on whether you’ve completed your contract in your current job.
