Hi,
I'm confused about a Limited & Unlimited contract. Could anyone define that for me..
Could you also tell me what is the notice period for both these.
I keep listening to various sides but am not sure which is the rite one.

Limited Contract
It will be for a specified period say 3 years
You should complete the entire contractual period then only you will be entitled for the gratuity.
In case you have to resign you should pay one and a half months salary to the employer or the remaining periods salary which ever is less
Unlimited Contract
This is for an unlimited period and you can resign by giving one month's notice .
And the gratuity will be based as follows
more than 1 year but less than 3 years 7 days basic salary as gratuity
more than 3 year but less than 5 years 14 days basic salary as gratuity
completed 5 years then 21 days basic salary
more than 6 years then first 5 years 21 days basic salary and the sixth year onwards 30 days basic salary as gratuity.

Hi lizancy,
In limited contract you have mentioned "It will be for a specified period say 3 years
You should complete the entire contractual period then only you will be entitled for the gratuity.
In case you have to resign you should pay one and a half months salary to the employer or the remaining periods salary which ever is less"
My question is after paying one and half months salary to the employer or remaining periods of salary whether it is sure that I can get NOC from my employer.
17th June 2008 From India
Dear All
Whether you pay the specified money to be relieved early in a limited contract it still depends on your management to approve to give you NOC (it solely depends on the management decision you cannot force them to give NOC)
The other thing is gratuity is applicable to all the employees whether you are under company's sponsorship or Father's or Husband sponsorship still if you are working for them then you are certainly entitled for gratuity.

hi sir, my contract is unlimited and i am still working more than 3 years now if i resign from my company can there is any ban on me? 6 month or 3 month please help me
27th January 2010 From United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi
My contract states:
Period of Contract: Three Years and further renewable.
I would take that as being an unlimited contract, can somebody confirm this?
I have just been released by the company after 20 months employment, I was given 1 months notice (which I am not required to work), would I expect 3 months compensation plus full gratuity (21 days)?
25th April 2010 From United Arab Emirates, Dubai
Hi folks,
I have a query on Gratuity payment on Limited contracts - as quoted if a person resigns before completing 5years on a limited contract he/she is not eligible for gratuity and the same law also states that limited contracts are only to a maximum period of 4years, so after that does it become unlimited?
1. So if it's unlimited then after completing 4years and employee should get 21days salary and not zero gratuity.
2. Normal practice in most of the companies - they renew the contracts every 3years and the labor just stamps on the old contract that is extended for 3years (no period is specified) if that is the case then is it still a limited contract or unlimited contract?
Someone please clarify my query.
Thank you & Regards,

Hi, I have started employement with a UAE company, however I am severily unhappy. I am sure If I was to leave I wouldnt get an NOC from my manager. I am under a unlimited contract, do I have any hope in being able to get out of this? What is a legitimate reason to terminate employment? I have also been told I could work in a freezone without an NOC, is this true? Thanks Alison

Dear All,

According to labour law in UAE there are 2 types of contract

1. Limited

2.Unlimited

Limited contract.

In limited contract it is for a stipulated period of time.for example it can be for 2 years,3 years or maximum 4years.

If you break the contact in between you have to pay 45 days salary to the employer if employee is breaking and if employer is breaking(termination) 2months salry + no of days salary mentioned in contract for notice period.

The contract is renewable say after 2 year,3 year,4 year as mentioned in your contract,and if you serve for more than 5 year(eg:3 year limited contract in first period and 2 year period in the next tenure of 3 years) you are eligible for gratuity as per UAE Labour law but you will face a ban of six months since the contract is broken

Unlimited Contract

It is for a period of unlimited time say for eg; from 21.09.2010 to.........Every 3 year you have to renew your labour card,but not your labour contract.If you break the contact before three years you are entitled for gratuity for 7 days,14 days,21 days,30 days etc depending on your service period,but you will face a ban for six months.One more thing this 7 days,14 days gratuity is the minimum amount the company has to pay,if they are kind enough!!! and wealthy!!! they can pay upto 21 or 30 days!!!(how sweet!!!)

If you serve the company for more than 3 years in unlimited contract for eg 3.6 years you will not face a ban (if you resigns),but if terminated you will get salary only for notice period mentioned in the contract(say 30 days,45 days,60 days,90 days)

If i am wrong please guide me

Please help me, if a limited contract finished as per the specified period of 2years, is the Employee entitled for 21 days per yer = 42 days, less the absences? please clarify... thanks
6th April 2013 From United Arab Emirates, Dubai
If a limited contract of 2years finished by an employee, he is entitled for 21 days Gratuity per year which is 42days and less the absences, as per the law.

@ Ruzella If a limited contract of 2years finished by an employee, he is entitled for 21 days Gratuity per year which is 42days and less the absences, as per the law.
Yes. Ruzella. For a limited contract, the employee has completed the term mentioned in the contract is entitled to full gratuity i.e. 21 days for each year. So, 42 days of gratuity.
