I have only been working for a company for 2 weeks now. I still have to finish the probation period of 3 weeks. There is no contract signed yet, accept a letter of appointment. But they are still processing the contract. How long should I wait to quit the job (how long should the notice period be?). I would like to go back to my country in the next week. So would I be able to just give 24h notice?
So you are a foreigner working in Malaysia, are you working legally with work permit. If yes, then you will have to go according what is stated in the contract. If you are working illegally, then just go back, don't bother to give any notice.
