Notice Period - MOM guidelines

Post by MohammedNiyaz » Thu, 17 Dec 2020 5:36 pm

Hello All, In my contract stated as 8 weeks notice period . But i can able to serve only 4 weeks notice period. In this case , i can choose compensation lieu of notice ? For this employer also need to agree or its only employee can choose this decision...
And also do i need to pay full amount for 8 weeks or only for remaining 4 weeks.

Please advice . Thanks a lot.

In Singapore it has to work both ways. If they can pay your off with salary in lieu, then you also can pay them off with salary in lieu. Two-way street.

If they let you go by paying YOU salary in lieu of notice from them (they paying you off), do you think they need your approval to do so? As I said before, it's a two-way street.
