My employer cut my pay about 6 months back, forced me to sign a memo accepting it or be fired (a conversation that I recorded on my mobile). Promised (verbally, not recorded) the with the pay cut no more employees would be cut for the rest of the year, yet here I am, terminated a couple of weeks ago.
The labor law says:
1. Employers are not allowed to deduct from an employees salary
2. Any agreements, memos, or contracts shall be written in Arabic
I want to recover the deducted wages.
When I took them to the ministry of labor, the lady said I had no case because I signed the memo. Do laws mean anything here or is it just a matter of how the judge is feeling that day?
Does anyone know a good lawyer?
Any advice is most welcome.
