Getting a memo at work

Post by sunflower.8 » Mon, 10 Oct 2016 9:35 pm

Hi All, I need your advice.

What does getting a memo from your boss means?
Does getting a memo means like a warning letter, that you boss issue to you that he/she can use to terminate you any time without paying you?

Kindly explain if there is such legal laws in Singapore.

Please advice if there is any organization in Singapore that can help employees who gets verbal abuse from your superiors.
What are the actions needed to be taken?

Thank you for your advice.

I reckon it depends on what was in the memo. It is a written message that is timestamped and therefore a legal document (Ask Hillary Clinton about emails). So, if your memo was a warning, it is considered a written warning and depending on severity of the infraction, yes, the next time could mean your termination.
