Can anyone here help me to interpret following clause.

7. LENGTH OF EMPLOYMENT

Your term of employment shall be for a period of three (3) years. In the event that you terminate your employment before the term you will be liable to compensate the firm for three months of your current salary (including allowances) subject to clause 8.

8. TERMINATION

Either party reserves the right to terminate this contract of service without any notice or payment in lieu of notice in the first month. From the second month to the end of the period of probation, either party reserves the right to terminate this contract of service by giving four weeks’ notice in writing or payment in lieu of notice.

Upon confirmation of service, either party reserves the right to terminate this contract of service by giving three months notice in writing or payment in lieu of such notice.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply Michael.

Because they didn't issue me a confirmation letter, Do I have to make any payment back to the company if I decided to resign?

If you never received any confirmation letter from the Company nor was it a clause stated in your Employment Letter that in the event after the probationary period you never receive any confirmation letter from the Company, you are deemed to be confirmed already, then you remain as a probationer until you receive such confirmation from the Company.

I just check, still probationer. so in conclusion that when if I resign, I will have to work for 1 month or payback 1 month salary+allowance?

Yes, if you have already worked for more than a month.

Thanks for your clarification. I though I need to pay back 3 months salary+commission if I plan to resign from current place.
