Notice period not mandatory if UAE job contract has expired

Pursuant to your queries, it is assumed that your wife has notified her employer, in writing, that she has resigned and will not renew her employment contract. It is not mandatory to serve the notice period as her contract has lapsed. She could simply inform her employer of her decision to not renew the contract. Your wife is entitled for all end of service benefits such as leave salary for annual leaves not availed, air ticket fare, severance pay, experience certificate and unpaid salaries, if any.
