We have a staff that had tendered his resignation letter that stated he would tender 3 months' notice, which he failed to do so (he went MIA a week after the date of his letter).

He went to labour department to have his salary paid, which we defend saying he had resigned without notice, and had left before the salary is paid to all staff (we normally pay salary on the 30th of every mth).

At the labour dept, we offered to settle the case by paying him half of his salary but he rejected. At the end, we were told to attend a court hearing. 

I would like to know is there any action / steps we should take in order to defend ourself as an employer?

Please advise.

The company can consult a lawyer or engage one to defend in the hearing.

Yeah. We are aware of our rights to engage a lawyer. My question was however, would there be any areas in which we can defend ourself as the employer?

Please give us suggestion and case laws so that we can refer to.

Thank you.

I think only a lawyer is qualified to give legal advice.
