Re: UK Citizen: WHP rejection, what to do?

You already know the difference between business and working here. I won't rehash it again. But picture this..... You are working and your company get spot-checked by MOM. When asked for your NRIC or your Work Pass, and you have to tell them you have none of the mentioned, what do you think is going...

Re: LOC- 2 job offer at the same time but one company has processed LOC

No longer exactly true. Now, if you are a B.Sc for instance in say philosophy, the odds are nigh on impossible to get a relevant job, but if you are a trailing spouse, and you have those kind of qualifications, you will not get a LoC for a job as a 1,800/mo Admin assistant as you could do say 5 or 1...

Considering you are posting from a Hanoi IP, I think it's highly unlikely.

Re: Got an offer, EP approved but employment will not commence

You just learned the hard way about joining body shops. Now go find a job on your own where you know what is happening or get plan B greased up and ready to take off back to Manila.

Re: Got my PR but Employer demand re-signing of new contract

Believe me, they will know what they are doing. No, it will probably not be adjusted again, as they will have already compensated in the new contract for that, or you might not get the increment you thought you would at the beginning of the third year. But I've not heard of that being done.

Re: Special Gathering of Eagles

If nobody is adverse to craft beer, we could go back to the place in Rochester Park where we went when Mi Amigo was here a while back. It's quiet enough. But it is a bit of a pain to get into and out of short of hoofing it a fair distance. But I'm open to other suggestions as well, due to iffy knees.

Re: PR Pending

The date on the letter is not really relevant insomuch as it's just the date the computer generated it. It was maile in a batch mailing probably sever days later. Look at any letter your received from the government, it only take 2 days max (if they mail at the close of business) for you to get mail...

Re: Do you think I will be able to find a job?

Honestly, be prepared to be unemployed. Else stay in your home country. While a LoC (Letter of Consent) can be gotten, you will need to qualify for it and it can't look like you are taking a lowly administrative job that would be taking a job away from a local. It's not easy. If, when you say partne...

Do a google search for Arthur Khong who is both a lawyer and a former HR Mgr/Director for Keppel Energy. In 2013 he left to start his own consultancy and is the Principal Trainer of HR Law Academy. I've taken several of his topic-specific courses via my Payroll Provider, Sage. I continue to be on hi...
