Re: Looking for Fortnite friends

Maidan, why should the poster put his number just so you can harvest it and resell it? I mean, afterall, you are nothing but a spammer trying to get their post count high enough before inserting something in your posts. Otherwise, why would you be posting innocuous one-two line replies that don't he...

Re: PR Application

All you can do is wait. As noted above going to see you MP will not do anything. In the case of trying to get PR it will not even give you a hope as you don't have an MP. Only PRs and Citizens have an MP. Go on about your business and continue to wait. Or, you can always bail out. Occasionally, we'v...

Re: 3 month notice period

Off days do not count. If you work a 5 days week, then two calendar weeks (14 days) is 10 days annual leave if offsetting (7 June in your example).

Re: 3 month notice period

As long as you can print it out with complete headers (which show date and timestamp) you should be good. Obviously you should continue to save it as a soft copy as well (in two different locations).

Re: 3 month notice period

No, as long as it's in writing. If not in writing, you have a 3 month notice period. Trust a local employer as much as you would trust one of your own countrymen. Without it in writing you have nothing.

Re: Singaporean Male - German Wife : PR Chances?

Oh, another thing. This only puts them on par with Employment Pass holder. Not SC or PR. SC or PR are not restricted to what jobs they can hold and they also don't lose their pass as PR or SC doesn't expire. The LoC does the same time the LTVP expires, just like the Loc held by a DP's spouse expires...

Re: Singaporean Male - German Wife : PR Chances?

The LoC has been around for a fair number of years already (about 5 if my memory serves). In fact, I put one of my S pass holders on one of the very first LoC granted here (I was an HR Mgr in a Medium Sized SME with around 225 staff at the time). In those days the LoC was virtually instantaneous (3 ...

Re: Singaporean Male - German Wife : PR Chances?

That is NOT correct. Why would they bother to give you a PLOC if it had the same status as a PR or Citizen. You actually think that they are that stupid? Do you also think that a PR has the same status as a citizen? :o

Re: 3 month notice period

Reread PNGMK's post above. As your salary is outside the purview of the MOM (Ministry of Manpower) you will have to work under the civil court. What remedies you have available to you I cannot say. You will have to talk to a lawyer as 2 month's salary is a fair bit of bread. Normal Employment law un...

Re: 3 month notice period

What is written in your contract if they want to release you early without termination?

What type of employment permit are you holding and your salary level.

Re: Retiring in Singapore

Yes they will (SS). However, I don't bother as I've always kept two sets of banks and CCs, etc. (US & SG) I've been here 36 years and just retired 3 months ago. Without PR the only way is SG Citizenship and renouncing your US citizenship (while it's not illegal in the US to hold multiple passpor...

Re: Mosquitoes!

No floor is exempt from mozzies. A mozzie's flight path is generally 10 to 12 m vertically either direction from their hatching point. In that respect, they can eventually be found at the top of the Pinnacle flats. If they ascend 30' (3 floors and find a food source, and a water source they will lay...
