Unsigned contract before work pass application

Post by dadummy29 » Tue, 28 Jul 2020 6:30 pm

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to ask if it's normal that an employment contract is sent over email but only to be signed on the start date of employment (after work pass is approved)? I have some friends said that normally HR asks them to sign the employment contract first before applying for their work pass application.

Also to add-on, I accepted an offer from a company, I submitted all my docs for work pass application and mention to wait for the outcome. I was constantly checking using the EP tool but never saw my application and I also never saw my job role on the jobs bank (careers future). Only after constant follow-ups that took about 3 weeks, I saw the job role was posted on jobs bank. The following day, the HR called me that there was a glitch on the jobs bank and they tried to follow up with it but advised that they still need to repost and wait for 14 days. Does anyone here experienced being told that there was such glitch?

Thank you for the time on reading this and hope to get some advice.
