Yes, it can.

As you make more than the amount covered under the employment act, you are not covered by MOM requirements. However, as your ARE A FOREIGNER, you are required, by law according to IRAS, to give at least 1 month's notice. This is because the employer has to file a Tax Clearance (IR-21) for every foreigner leaving the company unless said employee earns less than 20K/year. So, technically, the employer might not have to actually file due to your gross income in a given year being below the tax minimum, you are still required to give one month's notice with or without a contract. Failing which, you should be required to pay salary in lieu of notice. You are in the wrong if you do not give 1 month's notice.

But the odds of anything actually happening are slim as it would cost more than you are worth. Giving short notice? like I told another here this morning, the only real damage will be to your own reputation. You new employer, seeing what you did with the old employer, will have no compunction in sacking you with short notice should things get tight. Ye will reap what ye have sown.
