Legal for employer to deny resignation

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 07:28:52 PM  (Last updated: Thu, 03 Dec 2015 08:55:10 AM)


I am a foreign worker working in the IT industry under a contract from an outsourcing agency. I have accepted a job offer from another company and filed my resignation last 27th of November 2015 with the last day being 30 days after my notice date. However, my company's HR just responded and said that they are denying my resignation and if I did decide to push through with my resignation, they will not cancel my employment pass (EP). 

Are these actions of my company actually legal? What can I do to cancel my EP if my current company is actively preventing me from leaving?

Consult you outsourcing agency as to the proper step to take in such a situation or seek legal advice from a lawyer.
