 Hi there KL Siew, I was once posted here like Aug / Sept 2010.

I shall shorten my greeting and goes to my problems.

my case is like ..

Ok, here is my problem, last year, I planned to leave after giving 2 months notice, and my boss, so "KIND" to offer me an increment, which I think its reasonable, but then the fact is not, because after the increment, they try to postpone the recruitment plan, where the time we're already short of like 3-4 staffs, that is not important anymore now.

My Q is, the time they offer me an increment, they actually stated a few terms in the Salary Adjustment letter.

Here are the contents....

xx August 2010


Dear Sir/Madam:

We are pleased to advise you that the Company has approved a salary adjustment of RMxxx ti bring your base salary to RMxxx with effect from 1st October 2010.

Ya, since there is no mentioned of penalty for breaching the bond by leaving earlier, I would also ask the same question. But, I don't know whether the company would as they say "....the company shall have right to modify such term and conditions from time to time.....", which they have so far not done it yet.

 hmmm, so whats your suggestion for my next move?

Kinda exhausted to keep staying for the same job, I felt like tortured :(

I actually went to Menara Perkeso, labour department last week, the guy there also say the same

"Kalau majikan nak sue you, tanya apa yang dia nak sue, sbb document yang you sign tak kata you kena ganti rugi apa apa pun."

I just want to seek for some confirmation.

After this, you can always consult a lawyer and get some legal advice.

 Morning KL Siew,

So you're suggesting me to tender a resignation letter 1st, and see what my employer will do on me?

If thats the case, whats the worst consequences you foresee on my case?

If they sue me to court, will I be fined for paying 24 months x (my current salary)?

I just wondering on this, because I plan for another visit to Labour Department this evening @ Subang.
