Limited unlimited contract differences Dubai

1. Advantages for you.

Limited contracts - higher gratuity payment, potential financial penalty for company if they attempt to terminate your before contract expires.
Unlimited contracts - more flexible since you only have to give one month notice if you want to leave.

Disadvantages for you

Limited contracts - you are committed for a fixed period of time, potential one year ban and loss of gratuity if you break limited contract.
Unlimited contracts - can be given just one month notice by company, lower gratuity.

2. You should only sign papers you understand and agree with. Contact the Dubai labour department and/or a lawyer if there is anything that you don't understand, or are not sure if it is acceptable.
Please use the forum for questions, not the PM system.
