WY ship jumpers

With all the Malarkey regarding redundancies, are expat pilots in their rights to do a runner?

WY have handled the expats badly. Withholding end of service saying I must come back to close formalities even though they have all the outstanding returned items. I have started employment elsewhere so there is no way I am spending 2 weeks in quarantine in Oman, potentially 1 week in Oman and another 2 weeks in quarantine when I return home So canít close bank account utilities etc all saying I must come in person even though they know I am not in Middle East. So can understand people doing a runner!

There must be a way to get your EOSB if it's only a matter of utility bills etc while you're out of Oman.

The ones that have massive outstanding loans are the ones required to return and clear their debts, which I presume, after weighing out their options, decide to remain where they are.

The ones in Oman or anywhere else in the other outfits still in GCC,are now heading for first flight back to their homeland with anything from $20000 - $200000 debts or more.. Some not even tied to properties.

Either way, it's a double-edged sword whatever the route they take to get back home.

Difficult times. Understandable.

The main problem I see with running out on a debt is working for another carrier in the future that has OOMS as a destination or an alternate.

According to a friend who works in a bank here, the low level loans are being written off in-house.
The larger loans for property etc are the issue.
I can see ITC villas and apartments being handed over to the banks and resold later on.
Who they are going to sell them to is beyond me, as so many are leaving.
I'm the only one left on my floor in my apartment building.
The last guy is leaving in a few weeks.
Car park is almost empty with a couple of very new cars all covered in dust as owners have already left.
Very similar to the situation a few years back when the car park at the airport here was full of Dubai registered vehicles all gathering dust after folks drove down here to bail out instead of going through Dubai airport.

I think the problem down the line is that from what I understand the banks in UAE can sell the debt on and then then debt can be chased in the persons home country. Whether Oman does that who knows
