The college terminated in September 2018 the 51-year-old expat from Wisconsin, Robert Dobbs.
The Ministry of Justice has instructed a Sharjah-based college to grant Dh47,600 to a disabled veteran of the U.S. Army, Robert Dobbs, who served there as an administrative agent and after termination did not obtain his end-of-service advantages. On July 25, the court ruling was released.
In September 2018, Wisconsin’s 51-year-old expat Robert Dobbs was terminated by the college, reportedly because his instructional certificate “did not fulfill UAE equivalency criteria.” The organization did not offer him its dues, however, and declined to withdraw his job visa, allowing him, his mother, and five kids to live in disastrous circumstances.
How Dobbs suffered!
Dobbs could not secure another job because his visa would not be cancelled by the college. With a continuing court battle against the college, he continued to reside in the nation on an unused visa. “Because of my legal status, I couldn’t get another job. If you don’t have a valid Emirates ID, it’s hard–I couldn’t get the money my friend sent me as help, my SIM card was cut off, I couldn’t get a debit card and my bank accounts were frozen,” he said.
“My kids haven’t been to school for a year-this missed an academic year. We didn’t have cash to pay for rent-we still owe a bunch of rent back. The cash we’re going to get will assist, but it’s not enough to cover all of our duties entirely,” he added.
“I taught MBA and undergraduate learners to gain cash. I had to concentrate on easy but important activities-feeding and maintaining my family and taking care of their fundamental requirements, the hierarchy of requirements of Maslow,” Dobbs said.
“I would like to thank the government of the UAE for giving us justice. I put my family’s safety and security at risk because I couldn’t create my credit card or vehicle payments, eventually even getting behind on rent. It was a tremendous stress. No one should suffer such hard circumstances, at least not for the time period we have.”
Robert Dobbs, the 51-year-old expat from Wisconsin’s U.S. state, served eight years as a sergeant in the U.S. Army. He receives a tiny revenue from the U.S. Army due to being a veteran with a disability. In 1988, a helicopter injured Dobbs during a military assault in Honduras. The cash has helped him and his relatives remain afloat, particularly in collecting home lease parts while battling the court battle.
