Lawyer Ali Al Dhaheri, the legal representative of the female employee, presented a legal memorandum explaining the reasons for the lawsuit and accompanied by legal grounds, in which it stated that the contestant blamed the appealed ruling on the error in the application of the law and the failure to cause and corruption in the inference and that the work relationship between her and the institution in which the lawsuit against her is still ongoing and her service has not ended It is not permissible for that institution to deprive it of its right to benefit from the housing allocated to it, but the contested judgment obligated it to double the rent of the housing even though the amount of the fixed rent in the lease agreement pertains to two villas and not one villa after its exemption from work was considered as a termination of service despite the issuance of a decision to do so by the competent authority with what is wrong with it It should be distinguished.
