Transfer of residence for locally hired and hired from abroad

I am 2 years in my company and I am planning to submit my resignation. Am I eligible to get a release from them if I get a job from another company?

Answer: If you were hired locally, you are qualified to get a release from the company. If you are a university degree holder you could have even requested for a release at any point of time. If you are not, on the other hand the law required you to work for them at least for one year before asking for a release. A different ball-game will come into play if you were hired from your home country by your current sponsor. Under this scenario, the law mandates you to work for three years before being eligible to ask for a release.
