The Abu Dhabi Appellate Court upheld the Court of First Instance verdict obligating a company to pay an employee a compensation of Dhs540,000 after it broke its promise to employ him, on the basis of which the employee quit his previous work.
Details date back to earlier when the employee filed a lawsuit demanding that the company would compensate him for the material and moral damage after breaking its commitment to employ him for two years, as a manager for budget preparation and cost assessment, with a monthly salary of Dhs90,000, as well as health insurance and flight tickets for him and his family.
The Court of First Instance obligated the company to pay Dhs540,000 to the employee, who lost his income after quitting his previous work, for which he received a monthly salary of Dhs76,000.
The company appealed the verdict but the appellate court rejected the appeal.
Earlier, the Abu Dhabi Court of Cassation upheld a ruling rejecting a lawsuit filed by the brother of a woman after her death, in which he demanded that her husband and his brother be obligated to pay him compensation of Dhs200,000 and prove the invalidity of power of attorney granted by the deceased to her husband and brother.
The deceased’s brother filed a lawsuit after his sister’s death, demanding the annulment of all power of attorneys granted to her husband during her illness.
The deceased’s husband said his wife acknowledged in her will that he owned two apartments and that all what she did was according to her will, which was not affected by her illness.
The Court of First Instance rejected the case, and the brother appealed the verdict, but the court rejected the appeal, noting that the suspects obtained power of attorneys which enabled them to sell and buy, taking advantage of the deceased’s bad health condition, and that everything her husband and brother did was fraud and illegal.
The Court of Cassation also rejected the appeal and the case.
