Sorry to wade in late .. but your case sounds like an amazing employer who made me work for 3 months, when my EP was in tatters .. and then said "oh, I can't pay you as you are not employed, and my company can only pay you 1,000 Per month, as above that, we need to disclose to IRAS, if we issue Cash checks .. blah blah, so we will give you cash check for 950$ per month .. " Con job, but .. nothing I could do ..

They said that they can issue me a business visa or something which would give me a permission to be trained while I'm waiting for the EP outcome. Is this true? And they call my work before the EP "training". According to them this business visa can be issued for 1 day or something. Please, help. I'm still waiting for an answer to my question about the difference in the salary.
No clue .. but smells fishy ..
And btw, they acknowledged that they're targeting to a Q1 pass.
My 2 cents says "NO TARGETTING" .. either they know it or not ..
Edit: Here's the newest info. So they said I will sign a contract for 2.8 K and the remaining 300 will be deducted from my salary absulutely officially if I take enough non paid leave. So I should take non paid leave on papers to compensate these 300 for certain days each month, but still I'll be working. They said it's not forbidden to work during your non paid leave. I think I will shoot myself. Tell me what to do, please!
Means, you are violating the law .. if they are so desperate, they should pay you what you deserve ..
MOM has seen through all these ruses .. and it is a matter of time before some bored officer innocently does a 'routine' check, the exception being they guy is highly keyed in ..
Good luck .. but I been in yours shoes and never want to be in them again .. EVER ..
But, if you are hard up and need it bad, only you can decide if you are gonna risk it or burn everything ..
