Re: Salary

Hi, I have tender my resignation on 11-10-2010. The notice period i had given to my employer is 7 days (stated in the offer letter, i was still under probation). Therefore, the last working day of mine is 17-10-2010. However, the employer refused to give me the "letter of acceptance of my resignation" although i already returned all the company belongings to them on my last working day.
My problem is, i did not get my Oct'10 pay until today. Can you please tell me what can I do to the company? I just worry that they will claim that they never receive any resignation letter from me.

As for your unpaid salary you can make a complaint at the Labour Office. As for the resignation letter, you normally would hand it to the HR department. That's good enough. They are not obliged to give an acceptance letter.

Thanks Mr Siew. What if the employer insist that they did not receive my resignation? Can my colleague be the witness as she saw me handing over the letter to the HR?

Yes, she can be the witness. But sometimes, the employee may be reluctant to give evidence on your behalf against her employer. Next time, you better prepared the resignation letter in two copies and let HR people acknowledge it in the copy. They normally won't issue a separate letter of acknowledgment.

In this case, if the employee reluctant to be the witness then is it means that the salary will be gone ??

Then it would be your words against the employer's. Never mind, make a complaint about your salary and let the Labour Office investigate and decide.

Hi, I'm in a very confused state n really need ur advise. I started with this co about a year ago n had been confirmed after 3 months with a salary RM3000 per mth not including overtime etc. Last mth my employer had mentioned of salary deductions to all management staff n my salary is due to be deducted end of this mth for the amt RM500 which works to an approx 17%. Their reason is the co is not doing well n cash flow very negative. As we are in production, none of the of the production workers have been deducted. I'm the only management staff in the co n i'm responsible for all paper work such as accounts, quotations, all docs relating to production, payroll n other general works in the office. My appointment was for accounts n office management works not relating to production. My scope n work load was increased but not the pay. My initial thought was to work hard n to prove i was not calculative despite increased work load etc. The last straw came went they confirm my salary deductions due to reasons stated above n juz a few days ago, they hired additional employee to production. That angered me ! I have commitments n this have tilted the balance against me. The questions are: 1) isnt it the responsibility of the employer n its board of directors to ensure they have sufficient funds to operate the business? 2) is it legal for them to deduct juz my salary with this kind of reasons but hire new help? 3) how can i protect myself n what shud i do? Please advise as this has tremendously affected me. Tq
