Resignation during probation period (did not serve notice)

Fri, 06 Feb 2015 04:21:08 PM  (Last updated: Sun, 08 Feb 2015 08:26:30 AM)

Started work on 2nd January 2015 but it is 1st of January 2015 as stated in offer letter.

Due to personal reason i have to resign from the company on 14th January 2015. The day stated on my resignation letter is 14th January 2015 and they did not give any acceptance of resignation letter to me or a copy of my resignation letter. Just verbally that i can stop working.

Company A did not state on how many days of notice for resignation during probation period and they never shown any company handbook stating this policy and i did not sign any document stating the notice period resignation during probation period. It is not stated on the offer letter also.

Now they are paying me only 1 week of wages saying they have a 7 days notice. Just wanted to know can they do that?

And i dont know how to calculate the wages even if they paid me for 1 week of wages.

Basic salary RM2500, petrol allowance RM400, mobile allowance RM150 as in stated in offer letter. The pay for 1 week is only RM688

​Please advise.

Thank you.

So, let the department  look into the matter and decide
