Rude Employers, Unreasonable Salary Conditions, Scams

Postby hustisya » Mon, 25 Oct 2010 4:55 pm

I dont know if someone has already made a thread like this but as someone who is concern to everyone trying to work for greener pastures in Singapore, this thread could be useful...

Post all your bad experiences to rude employers, unreasonable salary conditions and scams and ways/tips to avoid such extortion

You could also post the name of the company, employer, address that cheated you or something like that(i dont know f thats allowed in the forums)...

This thread dont have any intention of ruin, destroy, or harass any company or employer, its just a way to help other people so that they will be warned.

It's better to move on and not take issue with such employers. It does no good and only aggravates an unpleasant situation.

Plus, most people are unwilling to take responsibility for their part in such situations. It's the employer that's bad - not the employee. But that's rarely the real situation.

I'm guessing you're mad at some company but don't want to be the first to post.

In many ways, what you would like to do is a great idea, for it would be a good thing to call out the charlatans and miscreants. But, there are two things that one must watch out for.

a) Libel laws here follow English law. If you malign someone or a company in a public post, you are automatically guilty of liable until you can prove that your accusations are true. So, if you call the Acme company management 'shit eaters', you best be able to prove it up.

b) There are always two sides to every story. Sure, there are companies that screw the employees, but there are employees that truly aren't worth having. How to tell which employee is doing the posting?
