My company gives us dental allowance annually, which I took after I sent in my resignation letter. However, my HR personnel raises the issue that my dental claim may not be approved because once I tendered my resignation, I am supposedly no longer eligible for any dental benefits. Is that true? For your information, this clause - if it's true - is not mentioned in my employment contract at all. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Under the Employment Act, there is no provision for medical claims or dental claims. Such benefits depend on the policy of the individual companies.

I understand that. However, can I argue that I am still be eligible for it, since it's not specifically stated that once I tender my resignation I can no longer make dental claims?

Why not you give a call to the Labour Department and see what they say about it officially.
