Ep rejected 2015

Post by Priyaamies » Thu, 01 Oct 2015 3:57 pm

Hi

I need some insights on my current situation.

Im a DP holder since 2012, total work experience is 4 years, i have worked in sg for 1.5 years, one was a fixed term contract and the next was contract to hire, and made permanent after 3 months based on my performance.

When in contract i was drawing 4000 sgd basic, after they made me permanent, the salary was reduced to 3600 sgd +aws +performance bonus. I quit my job because i had a difficult pregnancy. Its now a year since i took the break.

I had two offers , one from a big 4 and another government company. I chose the government company because in the long run we want to settle in singapore and it could add value.

They offered me 4600 sgd with two months completion bonus for a initial 1 year contract, subject to perm or renewal based on performance.

The company wanted to apply ep. Unfortunately my ep got rejected. The HR has already appealed and she mentioned that we have given strong reasons and that I shouldn't worry about it.

When i checked the SAT, i am eligible for EP for 4650 sgd. Will MoM consider the appeal, since the HR did not revise my salary just gave them reasons as to why they need me.

The min time for appeal is 3 weeks or it could be lesser than 3 weeks too?

Question 1 - if appeal gets rejected can the employer again apply new EP with increased salary?

Question 2 - Càn the employer apply LOC instead and what would be chances of the approval?

Its a top company and great opportunity, so I need advise.

Anyone faced this type of issue?

Thanks

Is there a good reason to have an EP rather than a DP or LTVP? It seems to me that DP/LTVP are better in the sense that the requirements for acceptance are lower and if you stop working for any reason, you don't have to the leave the country quickly. (I'm assuming one cannot hold both at the same time.) Perhaps someone is more likely to get PR if they have been on EP? Anyone who can shed some light on this, it would be appreciated. Thanks

The chief downside is that the DP/LOC is tied to an EP. If that EP is cancelled or not renewed, everybody has to leave. If you get your own EP and then lose it, you can always go back to DP. Or if the other EP in the household loses his/her EP, she/he can always get a DP under the remaining EP.
