Dear Sir / Madam

Good day.

Would like to enquire about payment on 2 months salary in lieu of termination notice.

I have worked for this company for about 10 years (01/03/2006 - 31/10/2015) I was informed by my boss on 07/10/2015 due to poor business and cut operating costs, company will be ceased operation effective from 31/10/2015. He informed me that he will pay me 2 months salary in lieu of termination notice. My last day is on 31/10/2015. I do not need to work on November and December.

On my last day of work 31/10/2015 I have received my salary for October pending salary for November and December. My boss said 2 months salary will only be paid on 30/11/2015 and 31/12/2015 respectively.

Kindly advise is it the actual procedure for payment on 2 months salary in lieu of termination. I have to wait until end of the months only get my salary.

Your kind assistance to the above is highly appreciated.

Thank you

Section 20 of the Employment Act says:

"20. The wages, less lawful deductions, earned by but not yet paid to an employee whose contract of service terminates in accordance with subsection 11(1) or of section 12 shall be paid to such employee not later than the day on which such contract of service so terminates. "
