An Abu Dhabi resident filed a lawsuit against a recruitment company demanding that it returns the Dh20,000 he paid for providing him a housemaid who refused to work claiming that she was ill.
The man also demanded Dh5,000 compensation from the company.
The man said in his lawsuit that he engaged the recruitment agency to bring him a housemaid from a foreign country after paying Dh20,000.
He pointed out that when the maid arrived at his home, she refused to work claiming that she suffered from a certain illness and that she could not do the house chores.
The employer said he complained to the recruitment firm so it could give him another housemaid or return his money, but the management was not cooperative.
He said the company refused to refund his cash, which prompted him to take the firm to court.
