A woman filed a lawsuit against a company demanding it to pay her Dhs300,000 in compensation for the material and moral damage she incurred as a result of not enabling her to obtain her job even after signing the job offer sent by the company.
In the lawsuit, the appellant mentioned that she received a job offer from the human resources department of the appellee company, to employ her as a manager for one of its branches, with a monthly salary of Dhs9,000.
She added that she already signed the job offer and resent it to the company after resigning from the company she worked for before.
The appellant added that the company delayed in handing over her the job and was surprised by a message from the human resources department of the company apologising for not being able to employ her, which caused her material and moral damage.
The court ordered the company to pay the appellant Dhs100,000, besides the fees and expenses of the lawsuit.
The company appealed the ruling, claiming rejection of the lawsuit, because the appellant resigned from her previous job a month before submitting the job offer. The company added that they did not cancel the job offer, but suspended it only according to the mail sent to the appellant and even did not recruit anyone instead of her. The Abu Dhabi Family Court and the Civil and Administrative Cases rejected the appealed ruling and forwarded the case to the Labour Court and obligated the company to pay the appeal costs.
The Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal upheld a ruling of the Court of First Instance that obligated a company to pay the wife of a worker and his three children Dhs200,000 in compensation, in addition to obligating it to pay all heirs Dhs120,000 distributed equally among them as moral compensation after the loss of their sole breadwinner.
The Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal decided to increase the compensation awarded to a worker who fell from a height while installing windows in a villa from Dhs40,000 to Dhs120,000. The worker in his thirties sustained fractures in the forehead and wrists and brain hemorrhage.
A dispute over a vehicle worth Dhs5,000 led a woman and her husband to court, where the woman filed a lawsuit, demanding her husband to give back her vehicle to her and pay a traffic fine of Dhs75.
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 to prove the invalidity of power of attorney granted by the deceased to her husband and brother.
