I'm desperately need help here .I'm PR dependent and arrived sg not long back. Without my hubby around in sg , i taken my first job offer with 1300 salary.Becasue I really impressed on the training offer and expect to become CPA sg, during my stay in this company , I don't see any training and all her want is get the job done as much as we can .There is no hand over on our assignments . She stingy to pay travel expenses to client place . She demanding to get $ 30000 a month of work to complete.
When i discuss with her for training i expected , boss asked me to pay the 3 years bonds compensation $6000. I'm scare and I dun have this amount , so kept carry on work with her .When i cannot stand every day stress on her scolding me , made me to take unpaid leave from work .Now i realise that my pay is lower than market rate and i found a new job with market rate .So i submit resign and she asked me to pay for compensation with the amount of 8000 . which is contract fees 6000+2600 (2 month notice) + leave taken in advance .
I would pay 2600 but i m considering contract fees which is for the training i never recived .
Pls advise me whether the company can sued to me or not ?Thanks :


What were your terms on the contract letter with your employer?

Firstly, don't understand what you mean by this? Are you saying hubby is a PR but no longer lives and works in Singapore?

What's in your contract?
Did you read it before signing?
How long have you been in the job?
Did the Company apply for LOC is you can legally work?

As you are a dependant pass holder your employer need to submit a Letter of Consent (LOC) application to the MOM, which if agreed, allows you to legally work in Singapore. Without it you are working illegally.
