Re: Termination - Serving notice

We have 3 mths termination notice for manager level which stated in their appointment letter. But, if the staff insist on serving only 1 mth
Can employer take any action? Heard that we cannot do anything to them also as 1 mth is consider valid although employment letter said 3 mths. And if the staff bring up to labour court, 1 mth is sufficient and employer has no right to hold them for 3 mths so long they serve 1 mth is consider sufficient. Is it correct?

Managers are most probably not covered by the Employment Act and as such you may have to sue them in civil court to recover the 2 months' salary as indemnity in lieu of short notice.

Noted, thanks Mr. Siew. Thats mean a staff must give full 3 months notice when he resign, right?

That's what the contract says, isn't it?

Hi:

I am currently on sick leave and has been hospitalized for a Spinal Injury in the course of work and was admintted to Sunway Medical Centre for 12 days. I have been working in this Company since December 6, 2010 and the Company has not confirmed my appointment after (6) months and has verbally extended my probation for (1) more month. Due to my health condition, I have applied for a 2 month unpaid leave but was rejected. Now the Company wants me to resign even though I am on Medical leave. Under my Letter of Employment, either party can terminate the service by giving a week's notice. Can you let me know whether the Employer has ground to terminate me just because I am on medical leave?. Thanks

Hi:

I am currently employed and am still on probation with one company. I have taken 8 days medical leave previously and the total entitlement for Medical leave is 14 days per annum.

Recently, I was admitted to the hospital for 12 days and am still on 7 days leave. All in all, i have taken 15 days medical leave and 12 days hospitalization sick leave. The Company has now refused to pay a full month salary for June 2011. Is the Employer correct in doing so by just paying the 7 days which i work in June 2011. Thanks
