Multiple EP application

Postby Ryan_ » Wed, 06 Apr 2011 9:50 am

Hi, I got a situation, I'm new to this and I would like to seek your suggestions if among you here has experience with multiple EP application.

I completed the project for my current employer so I started looking around, I got a job offer from company A and they applied me for a new EP we signed a contract right after my last day of work from my current employer and we have determine my start date to Company A but a week before that there was a change, the project is said to be 50-50 Go so they told me that the project might be delayed and just confirmed that yesterday that it will be delayed 6-months max very unfortunate it's beyond my control and per contract we will compensate for a 1-month notice period so I agreed. If they will not comply, do I have a case to file a legal action?

Company B comes in, last Friday I decided to signed another contract knowing that most likely Company A project will be canceled. Now, Company B told me that they might have problems with MOM since I have active approved EP so I need to ask Company A to withdraw it while Company B will proceed with the submission since I have to start next week.

My question is that even if there is an approved EP obviously second submission is still accepted but once it will be approved, does MOM will issue "Approval in Principle" for the second application? the Company A HR process will take some time even I sent them an email and there's no way I could wait for it to start next week.

I cannot get through MOM to ask this question, so hoping to hear from you.

Regards,
Ryan

It only takes a couple of minutes to cancel an EP application online. There is not any reason for company A to delay. Unfortunately, you cannot apply for another EP with a different company until such time as the 1st has been canceled.

As far as getting the 1 month's compensation, yes, you to have a legal right to it, but I'm assuming you do not fall into the Employment Act salary range so you would have to go after them in a civil suit.

Yeah I know it's click away to withdraw but the HR process they mentioned is killing me I guess I have no choice but to wait.. Thank you so much for the information.. I will try to follow up later today.

With regard to the Employment Act salary range glad that you've mentioned that I fall on 6K range for this contract I doubt I'm not covered to this but our contract clearly stated the obligation of 1-month notice compensation between parties otherwise this is unfair :(

You are correct, as you have stated the problem.

But, the way I'm understanding the OP's problem is that his EP hasn't been issued with the first company yet. Therefore he cannot have multiple AIP's which is what it sounds like at the moment.
