Dear all please guide me about ESB (End of Service Benefit) to help poor people.
The situation is we all are working in a factory and each employee goes on vacation after 2 years. While going on vacation company paid us 2 months’ salary (for per year, 15 days paid leave + 15 days ESB) so like this we get 2 salaries for 2 years it means one salary for each year (15 days salary amount for paid leave + 15 days salary amount for ESB). And they take signature on “Employees Amount Clearance Form” where its mention that we have received the Leave and ESB amount.
This is our company's rules for every employee even if they spent more than five years or ten years here. But according to Saudi labor law after 5 years we must get 1 month paid leave and 1 month salary as ESB for each year.
The poor persons didn’t know about ESB rules of labor court and they spent their 10’s of year here. After I explain them they are asking for difference from the year they start working till now. But company is refusing to pay them that difference. So they want to go labor court (but they can’t explain in Arabic to labor office) but the company is threaten them that you already sign on “Amount Received Form” and labor court will not accept your complain.
So can anybody explain me will we get the difference amount? Should we go for labor court or should we leave the amount and go back to our home country? Is there any possibility to win this case and get the difference amount? or is there any advocate who can fight for us (without compromising with kafeel).
