Manik, you need a CURRENT and valid work permit to work the UAE.
It is possible to work on a tourists VISA provided you and your employer are completing the expected steps to get a work VISA, a process which can take up to three months (according to a friend of mine who worked there last year and who had to wait for the work VISA to come through).
