Revision of salary woes

Post by CLM » Sat, 10 Jan 2009 10:16 pm

I'm a local in Singapore and just this year, my company decided to abolish AWS and they revised our monthly salary. However after calculating my fixed per annum salary is now lower than in previous year. Is there any employment act or any regulation i can use to argue with the management about this? Btw, i earn more than S$3,500 so i'm excluded from certain regulations/rights of MOM.

Someone familiar with Singapore Employment regulation can help???

Thank you

Welcome to the recession. Your option is to resign. Most contracts here give the employer the right the modify the terms of your contract either by memo or verbally. And, yes you have not rights under the Employment Act. However, you can always say "I quit" but of course that's only gonna make 'em smile if the are already in that big of a bind.
