As DXBtoDOH said, people move all the time. Generally it's not a big deal unless your employer is (1) sketchy or (2) you made them really angry somehow.

My own employer generally let people walk and start new employment immediately, but did have spasms of unpredictability and on occasion would ban someone. That was rare though.

I do know of companies that had a policy of automatically banning everyone once they left - hopefully you find that out before, and not after, you arrive.

There are circumstances when bans can be voided. If you have a master's, for example.

The various rules and exceptions means that for all practical purposes management level westerners aren't going to have to worry about employment bans.

The people I know who were banned, were management level Westerners.

If a company or local with enough pull wants to do it, it doesn't matter what the fine print in the legislation says.

But bans seem to be rare, and it's not something I would worry about. Though people like OP do get caught up in it from time to time.

Not that this helps OP. Sorry.

I believe it now costs the company 6,000dh ban someone. Probably why bans are rarer than they used to be.

Never heard of anyone getting banned, although I've never worked for a shitpot company.

surely those who get deported for criminal activity get banned from ever entering the country again?
