Re: Employer ask sign document or leave company


I recently stated work on Wednesday 1/4 and during the interview process in March the employer did explain that they will need to send me training oversees for 1-3 months immediately after i join. But when i went in on the first day they presented me with all the documents and flights details plus a piece of paper to sign that states that due to the high cost of training that i will stay in the company at least six months or will have to repay them. I protested on why i was not told in advance there was a bond, yesterday they called and told me that if i don't go for the training i will not be able to perform the job and thus useless to them.

So basically it';s either i accept and sign the document or no need to come in anymore.

What should i do ? Can i complain and who to . My salary is RM 4K stated on the offer letter and notice is 2 months.

Pls help ? Thank you.

You may consult the Industrial Relations Department see whether they can give you some opinion.

That looks like a very bad start. You better decide for yourself.

Hi. I am enquiring this on behalf of my mum.

She works as a general worker in a childcare for almost 4 years now. But when she join, she did not sign any offer of employment letter from the school. When ask the head, she says that no need sign any offer.

The head of the childcare have sold the centre to another person and did not inform any of the workers. My mum got to know from someone that the childcare contract ends this month. My mum salary is less than RM1500. As at todate, she did not get any notice of the lay off. As heard fr someone, they will be working for another 2 months with the new employer and thereafter will be terminated.

My question is :-
1) Can she get any compensation according to the employment act?
2) What can she do to get the compensation?
