If I have completed more than 1 yearwith the company, am I eligible for maternity leave and pay or not?

I joined the company 13 months ago. Despite making several request they have not processed my labor card for this period. Now that I am pregnant and informed them about my maternity, they are trying to terminate me? Can I register a case against them in the UAE labor court for the same or not?
