I am working in a private company since 2007. Now I am trying to get a release … is it possible or not? Please send me details on how to approach my company?
Answer: Well, you have already put in 9 years service so you should have no problems in getting a release. You are entitled to one three years after being hired from abroad or one year if you did a local transfer on joining this firm.
You should also know that you are entitled to two-thirds of the indemnity — if you resign — because you have over 5 years but less than 10 years service.
To get a release you will have to resign by giving a three-month notice and finding a job with another company.
You then have to get a transfer letter from your new sponsor and get it signed from your current sponsor. Just give this release / transfer letter to the Mandoub (company representative) of the new firm and he will do the rest.
