One week given to transfer visa

I was working as a nurse in a clinic, i resigned, last day was Sept 30, 2019. I will transfer my visa to family. Now Oct 3, my employer informed me that i need to transfer residency till next week, if not they will file a case against me in sho’on. Is it possible? How come I am only given one week. I just completed our requirements for family visa, will start processing on Sunday but I don’t think a week is enough to finish. Please advice, need your help. Thanks.

Answer: So far as you have begun the processes that will lead to the transfer to your work visa to a dependent visa, we advise you to continue the processes and ignore the threats of your employer, who is enjoined by law to give you reasonable time to effect the transfer.

By no stretch of imagination can one week be said to be reasonable time within which to transfer your residency.

In the event that your employer carries out his threat to report you to sho’on just make sure that you arm yourself with all the documents to show that you are in the process of transferring your visa 18 to visa 22 (family). This will be enough to expose the absconding lie being bandied before you.
