Sounds like they got off easy. In fact, it sounds like they did the best thing they could do as there is already a track record. Had they tried to screw her further, they could be in really deep trouble. In fact, a lot of local employers depend on fear to get their way. The fact that she pursued it, made them wary of her and figured out a mutual releasing of the contract would be easier than trying to screw her further.

Let this be a lesson for your cousin. Never sign anything without getting a copy of it on the spot, or taking a photo of it, as mentioned. This will put off any employer who might be having designs on messing with employees. Too many of those slippery bastards out there already.

Let it be a lesson learned.

thanks for everyone's attention on my cousin's messy situation :)


Sundaymorningstaple,

Ya mentioned this 'Additionally, she needs to go to MOM if she is released from her employment' in earlier post. Am confused, so does she still need to go to MOM, since she is released from her employment ?



#-o didn't expect such from them.. understood from my cousin that, that boss driving rolls royce, wife driving porsche.. :shit:

Nah, she doesn't have any proof as at this point it's her word against their word. However, had they tried to shaft her on her salary or tried to obtain additional monies from her, then by all means pursue it with the MOM.

How do you think the boss & wife got those cars. By shafting the staff buy underpaying them or finding ways to keep their salaries. They probably cheat IRAS as well. I'd be willing to bet the also have lots of WP's & S pass holders as well.
