Hi W783,

Things like this do happen.

There is no fixed compensation amount to be settled to its employees, by a company which goes insolvent.

To expect a company which is already broke to pay 10-month's salaries to its employees is quite frankly, unrealistic as the company is already in the red.

Expatriate employees can take up their case with their respective embassies and also go to the Ministry of Manpower and file a case with the Oman Labour Court as well. The court will definitely give the case a fair hearing and a settlement would be arrived at.

But it could be a long drawn out process. Whether the employees can hold on, on their own, without getting any salary / income until the case is resolved is the big question.

Thank you sumitran
