Re: 2 month notice contract


I have 1 one year contract.In the contract,it said either both party can terminate with 2 month notice.However,it does not mention payment in lieu.
Recently,I give 2 month notice with 1 month buyout.

The client that I work for said they have the right not to let me buyout 1 month.Reason they do not have sufficient manpower and need me for the new project.The new project havent start yet.They expect 2 month project to be completed in 2 week.

My question is whether the agency that I sign contract with can force me to work until 2 month even I offer 1 month buyout?
And also will they dont pay my last month salary?

Truly need your advice

What I would do is to give two months notice, at the end of the first month, after getting my salary , pay the company one month's salary in lieu of the second month short notice and say goodbye. But that's not a very nice way of doing things. Try to find a amicable way of resolving the issue before you go. Always come with goodwill and go with goodwill. I think yours is a small field where everyone knows everyone. Who knows, you people may meet again one day.

Without knowing the type of contract you have entered with them, I dont see how they can force you. If they fail to pay your salary, you may complain to the Labour Department or sue them in court for it.

Dear KL Siew,

Today they threaten me with below sentence

"I have also indicated that there is no salary-in-lieu in your contract agreement."

Please advice.
