employment lawyer

Post by Singapore Newbie » Sat, 16 May 2009 8:09 pm

I just returned to work from maternity leave and gave my boss my one month's notice due to the fact that we are leaving Singapore by the end of the summer. Because I have been working at this job less than a year, my boss is threatening to sue me if I don't repay the maternity leave. We have a contract.

I have met with MOM Legal and they think I am right, but they said I need to seek my own counsel.

Can anyone recommend a lawyer who might specialize in employment law?

I'm sorry but if MOM says you are in the right let them sue you... takes foreever... and I think they are bluffing. Call them on it. Tell them you will sue them back... maybe for violation of contract... or libel... or just because you don't like the hairs growing out of his nose.
