Re: Employers rights

HI, of late, i got experienced employees resign without giving resignation letter, most of them practice SMS as a way to resign. When employer give call to them immediately, they ignore picking our calls and ignore our SMS to reply back. In such scenario, what Employer can do to them? Employer need to close their HR file in proper manner but facing the trends these days with such act, how can Employer pay them their last salary not to mention about their handover of duties, their staff ID etc etc. Very frustrating! Please give your valuable comments and suggestions. Thanks.

You may add a clause on employees' appointment letter or employee handbook stipulating that only the hard copy resignation letter will be accepted, any resignation done via other means will not be regarded. Besides that, the short notice of the employees who resign is subject to the penalty of salary in lieu.

Same frustration as FPL. These days the employees doesn't care and you cannot get them the minute they SMS or email. The next day they are working somewhere else. How to chase for the paid in Lieu?

Appreciate some tips on this one. Thanks!

Let's send them a letter (via AR Register) telling them they have yet to pay the "X" month(s) salary in lieu of their short notice, and set a deadline for them to respond to it. If they fail to do so by certain date, legal proceedings will take place to recover the "X" month(s) salary from them. Most people will respond to such letter and get things settled before further action takes place. Do give some room for "waiver" or "discount" if they have valid reason for the short notice.
