Re: Project end -

Dear Mr Siew,

Previously we employed an employee to run a project. During the interview, my boss verbally informed this employee that he was employed to carry out the said project. Now my boss wish to end this project, (he do receive a standard appoint letter) can we terminate the said employee's employment? Do we need to pay him the compensation, such as termination or lay-off benefits payment? He only worked about 6 months. The said appointment letter does not mentioned about compensation if the project end.

Please advise! Thanks!

Under the Employment Act, he is not because he worked for less than 12 months.

Since the appointment letter stated that one mth notice either party termination. Therefore we pay him 1 mth wages, correct?

In fact the appointment letter does not state about project, there is normally appointment letter.

Please help! Thank you very much!

You can do that but he has the right to complain to either the Labour Office or the IR Department.
