urgently need advise
I have agreed to compensate them 1month out of the 2month buy out, as per my phone conversation with the HR previously. And in my letter of resignation letter, i have stated that i will compensate the 1 month out of 2-mth buy out. However, upon receiving the release letter, they said it is justified for me to remit the company 1month of my 'current' salary.
May I know if i can disagree to this? The different for the 1 month out of 2-mth buy out and current salary is pretty big (almost RM1k).
I have seek for HR's clarification and she said that its rightful that they want me to pay them back 1 month of my current salary.
I am very upset with this as 1stly, before I joined, have clearly asked if i m bonded, and they said no. 2ndly, there's no black and white regarding the buy out and whether i need to compensate. 3rdly, when I discussed this with the hr on the phone, on my understanding, I have to pay them back 1month of the 2months buy out amount. Now, she changed the 'statements' that she has never said that and it is rightful for them to ask me compensate 2 months of my current salary but they r being 'kind' to ask me pay back 1month instead, which I tihnk is absurd!.
Please advise if I could bring this up to the labor department or legally? Also, may I know if there's any body which can asisst me? I have no money to engage an expensive lawyer to help me sort this out. I have always been wanting to go nicely, but i think they r being mean to me :(.
My last day is tomorrow, 13/6. Would appreciate if you could revert me ASAP. Thanks.
