Well it's hard to leave it there, since (IMO) it's not 'wrong' either way - it just depends on what is in the employment contract and/or agreed later on.ecureilx wrote:and i believe I said before also taking all from employee's pocket is wrong ....
lets leave it there then.,.
I don't think it's reasonable for an EP holder to just assume that an employer will be happy to pay their CPF contribution if they obtain PR, even if the original employment contract is silent on that point. Hence I think a discussion around this needs to be had before putting in a PR application, and an agreement (hopefully) reached. If not, and the employer really doesn't want to pay their CPF portion (and the employee is not willing to pay it either), there's always the chance that the employment will come to an end.
Remember that Singapore basically has 'at will' employment laws, meaning that a company can easily terminate an employee if they want to (assuming that they don't fall into the lower salary range, where some protection exists).
OK, I'll say no more on the subject now.
