for example a staff to resign suppose is 2 wks notice follow the contract of employment. But the said staff resign in 24 hrs( still under the contract) since he unable to meet the contract,i dun hv to pay him salary right? besides, what about OT ? shall i pay him back .. even i deduct the salary.. shall i only hold the BASIC pay ... but without the OT? or both i hv the right to hold both since he breach the contract.
I was working on a 1 year contract with a company and at the end of my contract I had signed a further extension of 6 month for this job.
However since I was subjected to bullying and ended up having depression and unable to cope with my work, I decided to leave as I had to do so for my own peace of mind before I killed myself or someone.
1 month into the 6 months extension contract, I left.
I had put the resignation letter on the relevant person's table since the person had gone outstation.
In the letter I stated that I had to leave due to unforeseen circumstances and I was sorry for any inconvenience caused.
In December 2012 I received a letter from the said company asking me to explain my absence and if they did not hear from me they would take action against me.
My spouse then delivered the copy of my resignation letter to the company and obtained an acknowledgement from the HR of the letter. It seems that they could not find any letter which is not my problem really.
Now they have complained to the labour office and wants me to pay the 3,600 in lieu of my notice which they claimd they did not receive ( apparently!)
I am currently not working fyi and have no income at all.
If they still insist that I pay the amount, I can but can only do so in a very little amt.
Am i right in saying that they cannot force me to pay the whole sum one shot but have to accept whatever I am able to pay since I have no income ?
