[same old case] LoC status pending income from vetting agencies

Postby lalapoh » Fri, 03 Jun 2016 4:24 pm

Dear all,

I am ltvp plus holder, married to malay singaporean and have 8 months baby boy singaporean.

I've got job offered on april thru an employment agency. We agree that for this job the contract will be between me and EA. so EA will apply for the LoC to the MoM. Well, obviously the LoC was rejected, with the reason : insecurity, i think its because the Contract not directly between me and employer. Then EA intended to appeal and it need 2-3 weeks.

Realising that it was time consuming then the employer willing to directly apply LoC to the MoM, with the job contract now between me and employee.

About one week later, the company update that the LoC was pending and MoM require higher authority to check. And 3 days afterward, thecompany call me to sign new form from MoM, which i read so far was about i agree the salary will subject to be deducted to tax, etc etc

Its been 8 working days and i checked to MoM website the status still : pending input from vetting agencies. Outcome Expect 2 months from the date of application.

Im worry that the manager may not able to wait any longer since end of april.

Pls help me.. What else i can do? Pray and wait..

Thank you so much

Lala

Most Indonesian's qualifications will have to go through the vetting agencies step, thanks to rampant fake certificates practices back home. Not sure how it goes with LOC, since those I'm aware of happened to the Spass or Epass applications. In Singapore normally once the application submitted, no way to "expedite or help" the application to be approved, unlike in Indonesia. Just be patient and wait.

Hopefully the good result will be out soon.

Oouch reaally? Understood if it takes so long.

I really worry that the company will no longer tolerate the delay.

Btw if the company decide to withdraw/cancel the application and choose the other candidate, isnt it breach the contract itself? Or the company also need to wait for the outcome before they can hire other candidate?

Well, i think i need to read again the contract.
And lots of prays and patient.

Generally speaking, in Singapore all contracts between potential employers and employees are contingent upon the employee being successful in acquiring the relevant working pass for Singapore. Therefore, the contract only become valid upon the issuance of the relevant work visa, regardless of whether you and/or the company have signed it.

Based on your theory, then YOU have breached the contract as you were the one who submitted the documents and experience on your application. They offered you a contract contingent that information is able to be confirmed in a reasonable amount of time. You don't even want to go that direction. :-/

Know the wood.. Hope that will never happen to me..

So basically company can cancel/withdraw the LoC application without have to wait the MoM outcome, right?

Thank you for all your replies.

Two suggestions.
a) wait it out
b) go home.

That all you can do.
