I know for a fact, those who do runners are not favoured by MOM, though I know exactly only one person who got back here, on a 5 figure salary, having done a runner when she was on a 4 figure salary ..taxico wrote:i'm no immigration expert, but i don't think running off on a job is something you go to jail over (taxes... i'm not so sure, although i think it's no biggie, better safe than sorry - so pay up).
wouldn't it be easier just to email/write in to MOM (and IRAS) and seek clarification if there are any criminal charges/legal procedures against you?
All others, about 10 or so - who just disappeared as they got fed up or got stressed or simply wanted to leave Singapore - when they applied for another job, all were rejected ..
And the lower you are in the food chain, the higher the chance of the past record working against you .. as I figured ..
The issue is the smaller the company, the more they react, for obvious reasons - when a person does a runner and the employer has to figure out how to pay fines and all .. unlike larger companies who take a more gentler view .. the latter have larger pockets right ??
