Re: Problem with ex-employer

I am a programmer earning more than RM1500 a month. Iíve resigned from my previous company and joined a new company. Now, my previous company keeps on calling me and asks me to edit/customize a program which is written by me during my employment with him. Problem is: Iíve already resigned and I have no responsibility to customize program for the company anymore. What can I do to ignore this? Thanks.

Can't you charge him for it and do it during your off days?

Thanks for your suggestion. He is unwilling to pay. Just think of any legal way to settle this thing. Thank you.

I do not know whether it was your unfinished work or additional requests by the client If it is unfinished work and there is no one who could edit or customize the codes and it is also not a major job, I would, as a professional, try to complete the project for the ex-employer. I don't know what about you. You decide.

Yes, this is always happening to programmer when they left a company. It's actually an in-house program and definitely a completed one; problem is the boss (previous company) would like to customize it for the company future development usage. At the time I tender my resignation, it's completed and to the companyís satisfaction. I do not want to involve in the ex-companyís issue where Iíve already engage with current company. Thanks.
