I would like to clarify to the questioner that as per the Labour Law, for the resignation of the worker, it is not required to be approved by the employer and sending resignation via email is considered as legal way as per the labour law. Therefore, the questioner as per law is considered as resigned, so she shall continue her work within the agreed notice period unless the employer requests the questioner in writing not to work within the notice period. Therefore the questioner shall approach the Ministry of Labour in the event of non-acceptance of such matter by the employer. Finally the questioner can join a new employer and the NOC is not required from the current employer as long as the questioner finds a job with a salary of Dh12,000 because the questioner is holding a bachelor’s degree as per the labour office requirement.
