Transfer is possible if  you have an offer from another employer and if you can prove in court all what you said against your employer. I suggest you collect information for your case like pending salaries - copies of payslip or bank transfers, work conditions and any communication with sponsor if possible in writing and then approach a good lawyer.

Thanks dear but i have only one soft copy of half salary with me and he is providing salary in cash .He send me here and there on site on foot and dont provide me a car yet as in offer letter mentioned. Its very hard for me to survive as he is not paying me any thing .As  i communicate him about the situation but he dont heed .Can i runaway because i have no iqama yet .

If you run away then this will become a serious issue and you will be at fault even if the sponsor was delaying pay. Your best option is to collect all documentation that you have and seek a lawyers help.  There is a lawyer in this forum who provides consultation, you can search for him yossef11. Perhaps he might be able to guide you better.

Thanks dear for a good reply.

I have not been given salary for 1 year now.. This march is 1 year.. Evrytime my sponsor says he does not have money just wait.. I waited for 1 year now when i ask him money he gives me 500 riyals in 2 months.. Wat can i do please help me..

Its better you ask for exit or warn him i will file case in Maktabul Amal .Dont bow before these non sense people and struggle for your rights what a person have during employment .
