Re: Do I need to bear the Debts?

Hi Mr.Siew,

I have 1 customer did not want to pay for the goods that he bought a few months back. The goods is actually based on COD terms. Since he received it, I've been going to his work place to request for the payment every month. He claimed he already paid for it. But I did not receive it. I ask for the transaction details to prove it right but he keep delaying it with lame excuses. Since then, my manager ask me to bear the payment (more than RM10K) because he said the goods is in COD term. He already suspend my commission for the past 6 months. I have tried my best to collect the debts back, but it is fruitless. Because of this incident, I have not been able to concentrate my job and sleepless for the past few months. My question is:-
1) Do I really need to bear the debts?
2) If I resign, will my company have rights to claim the debts from me?

Very unfortunate. Who was the one who delivered the goods and who was responsible to collect the money since it was COD? If there were documents like purchase order from the customer and delivery order duly acknowledging receipt of the goods, the company should take court action to recover the debt instead of asking you to pay for it. Why can't your company take court action to recover the debt?

The goods delivered by lorry driver and I was the one responsible to collect the money. We do have DO and PO with the customer's chop & sign on our hand. I already asked my company to issue a legal letter to the customer but they said
they are considering it. Maybe it is due to time consuming if this matter brought
to court?

The company must take legal action, not just considering it. Tell them to get a lawyer to demand payment and institute legal action if payment is not made. They should not ask you to pay. You may consult the Labour Department whether they can help you to recover the commission that was withheld..
