Do you work in Singapore without knowing who you work for ?


I think OP mentioned OP graduated from a local Uni. If so, that would explain a lot. :-|

So you don't ask your boss for his ,/ her name card ? Do you know the HR or no ?

Or look up the boss' on Google / LinkedIn?

Per MOM rules you need to submit resignation especially if you want to leave on your own accord

That's my 0.02$ worth advice

What is written on your employment contract? There must be some location there.

You mean its written in the contract whether i need to submit my resignation via email or letter r
or verbal? No, no such thing. This is my first job but i never hear such thing written in the contract. It just mentioned that i need to give 12 weeks notice and pay compensation if i leave before 2 years.

LOCATION, you have to have a contract (you have one, right?) and in this contract it has to be something identifying your employer. Hard to believe there is no address, PO Box or anything of this sort there.

Go there:
www.bizfile.gov.sg

and search the company name.
It should give you the address.

or maybe he doesn't even know his company name :D

confusedasalways : per Local Laws, to avoid ambiguity, you need to send in a resignation, either by Email to the "RIGHT" party, or by a written letter, per the company policy

Verbal is NOT accepted and can be disputed, unless the employer has good relationship with you !

Either (in person) hand over the resignation notice and ask to acknowledge the receipt of it on a copy of the notice or sent the resignation letter via registered mail.

E-mail is fine if you trust your employer, otherwise there may be no proof they ever receive it.

some employers specifically state that you can notify by email, a lot leave it vague ..where they need a written letter with signature et al ..

Alas, I think our friend still doesn't know whom to tell that he is leaving, though he didn't seem to have had that problem when joining

My $0.02, what I always do, and has never failed me so far (even when I was in a legal battle with my ex employer):

Prepare a resignation letter addressed to your manager (whose name you should know!!), HR (if there is any) and other supervisors you need to notify. Must include the address of the company, and your name and position, as well as the date of resignation. Short and professional is best - just the facts (that you are resigning and when your last day is contractually). If you are resigning for a cause that may come up later, include it (e.g., non-payment of salaries).

Print out the resignation letter and sign it. Then scan it and send it by email attachment to the addressees. Make at least one copy for yourself, hand over the original to the company - either HR or your manager or one of your other supervisors. (Store the scanned copy electronically as well if possible)

It's one of those things that every salary man should know:

To resign:
1. Tell it to your immediate supervisor/manager.
2. Give written notice.
3. Have proof they got written notice.

Oh well, OP. Charge it to experience.
