Doing the labor limbo in Dubai - the long national nightmare continues
The labourers were working for a UAE national who runs a construction company. They were dismissed in 2004.
. . . .
The workers, left penniless, unemployed and without their passports, are from India and Bangladesh.
"The sponsor did not pay any of the labourers' earnings, end-of-service benefits, return tickets, compensation for unlawful dismissals and many other dues," the labourers' legal consultant, Karunagappaly Shamsudeen of Al Kabban Advocates and Legal Consultants, told Gulf News yesterday.
"He left the claimants penniless, homeless and unemployed and he is still retaining their passports without any legal grounds," he added.
