I am just venting. People have it a lot worse of than me. However, it is good to hear about others' experiences. Despite my griping, MOM has been helpful. This board has also helped me navigate Singapore.

In my days, if you dare to call your employer a douchebag -it is as good as proclaiming to the world that you are not a person to be employed :D Ever :D

No - while your employer can be an ass - he did put up with you and fed you - so you can call him an ass - or a jerk - but douchebag ?? that's a bit too much for me to stomach .

Then again - I am not privy to know your age or your thinking :D

Cheers and have a nice day ..

Ex-employer not cancelling EP

Postby manishbasantani » Sat, 02 Jul 2011 9:51 pm

Hi,
A month back I accepted offer of an employer in Singapore, I was supposed to join and travel this weekend only. Since I got a better offer from another employer 2 weeks back, I decided not to join the previous one.

I informed them a week back. Now the problem is my previous employer is not cancelling my EP. And before that the new employer cab not file my EP, and hence I can not fly.

Please suggest if there is a way I can for e the previous employer to cancel my EP?
Please help.

Thanks.

cancellation

my advice: you can submit a letter to MOM, which, they may or may not accept .... and if they accept, they will still need concurrence from the employer ..

in my case, when a company went belly up, despite the company MIA, the MOM insisted to wait for 30 days before coming back for cancellation ..

I am a bit jealous though ... how do you become such a hot property till your moral fiber flies out of the window ?? :???: :???: :???:

Cancellation

Thanks for the suggestion. Though waiting for a month is impossible, I would rather join a company in India itself.

Also. It's not about being hot property, there were some did-agreement in the offer provided by previous employer which could not be settled. And I could find another offer before joining.
