The above case has been filed and 1st meeting has conducted last Monday. When I file the case, the IR officer advised that I can only request for reinstatement (according to your above reply) as this was unfair dismissal.
One of the reasons stated in the termination letter was customer complained my bad service. During the meeting, the IR officer asked my employer to show the complain letter and my employer shown a few which dated 4 days ago and some of the customers hasn't reply to their emails. Mr Siew, does the email valid when bring to IR court? The termination letter was dated 22/06/2013 and the complain emails were dated 22/08/2013 and later. At the end of the meeting, my employer does not want to reinstate me and willing to pay 1 month salary as compensation. I did not agree and request for 3 months. Why 3 months? Reason as below:
1 month - compensation
2 months - salary for July and August as I am jobless while waiting for reinstatement.
My employer refused and willing to bring this case to IR court.
If this case has been brought to IR court, do I need to get a lawyer?
