OT-Y is common in Singapore so you'll just have to suck it up. Don't bother with the Philippine Embassy as they have enough to worry about with the domestic helpers.crescia wrote:I would like to terminate my contract with my employer but asked me to pay a monetary compensation as per stated in the contract.
Before that, I wish to file a complain about their statement in the contract about the number of work hours (almost 50 hours per week instead of 44 hours only according to MOM). Of course, the salary they declared in the contract was 2,000 (but only give me less).
What will I do first? Go to MOM? Or seek some help from the Philippine Embassy here in Singapore? Thanks
As you quota, An employee covered Employment Act.morenangpinay wrote: refer below:
An employee covered by Part IV of the Employment Act is not required under his/her contract of service to work more than eight hours in a day or 44 hours in a week.
In general I favour going back to statute to resolve questions. If it is well drafted there is little wiggle room.therat wrote: Workmen earning not more than $4,500 basic monthly salaries and
Employees earning not more than $2,000 basic monthly salaries.
His contact stated his salary $2000 which mean, he is not cover by Employment Act. Hence the 44 working hrs does not mean anything to him.
