Hi,

I have a question regarding termination of an employee's employment. Assuming, an employee tenders his/her resignation letter as he/she obtained a better job offer (with the condition of fulfilling the employment contract, i.e. grace period after tendering the resignation letter). The employer is unhappy with his/her decision and decides to terminate the employment of the employee. 

With this, the employer issues a termination letter requesting the employee to pay back 3 months salary to the company. 

What should the affected employee do? 

Besides this, do he/she obliged to inform his/her current employer of his/her new job (company name)?

Appreciate your advice on the above matter.

Regards,

alphashane

The employee resigned and the employer was unhappy with him and issued the termination letter, on what ground is there for you to ask him to pay back the company 3 months salary?

The above case was described to me by my friend. Based on his story, his employer issue a termination letter as he was unhappy with the fact that his employee decided to quit after being close to 6 months employed in the company.

I don't quite understand the case. If that is your friend's case, tell him to go to the Labour Department and discuss the matter with the officer there.
