UAE: Indian worker owed 150,000 USD by employer despite favourable court ruling

"3 siblings out of school for a year after father loses job in UAE", 22 Aug 2019

 A resident of the UAE for 23 years, Musthafa Yakub's former company is yet to pay him the Dh551,127 it owes him after he lost his job as a finance manager...

"My children have not gone to school for one full academic year... I filed a case with the labour department and the Dubai Courts in September 2018. In May 2019, a Dubai court ruled in my favour and directed my employer to pay out my final settlement."

Yakub and his family could soon be evicted from their apartment in Mirdif for failing to pay the rent.
