If I got my s pass approved by mom with the second employer, is it necessary to inform about this to my first company.
They wont allow me to leave.
Can i simply inform them to cancel the pass, so that i am leaving singapore..
I have informed my second employer in detail about my first company. please advise...
To rephrase some of the answers ..
1) It is not necessary to inform your current employer about the new employer. However, informing them means, you can avoid them pulling a rarely used but not uncommon stunt for those who claim to go back home for good - "Well, send us your departure stamp, and we will mail your salary check after deducting the income tax dues .. " and when they log in it EPOL and see that your status is not 'cancelled' a smart employer knows that you tried to pull the wool over their eyes ....
I have Seen that ..
2) Nobody can force you to work against your will, unless you have been doing things that do drive the employer crazy with implied or obvious acts ..
3) If an employer is by-the-book, they will cancel your pass, ensure you get your SVP and ensure you clear your tax, and ensure you departed, and they have all the rights to do it .. some may some 'kindness', some may just not bother, and rightfully, the employer has to make sure you left Singapore .. What you do upon your return is not their problem.
You need to give your resignation in writing, based on your company policy, and then do the needful. It is not like "I am leaving, cancel my pass" and you disappear .. An employer can also write to MOM and do the needful to ensure your next venture faces a lot of trouble, though with an AIP, there is not much they can do, but still, they can try. Again, unless you have been a real pain in the neck, I doubt any employer goes to that extreme ..
A of question: why wouldn't you amicably leave your current employer ??
