My understanding of the contract is that if my position is not confirmed before the expiry of my probationary period, the contract will simple cease and terminate without further payment from me, and no notice period neither. But what HR told me is totally different.offshoreoildude wrote:It sounds a bit off but I think you're attitude sucks anyways. I doubt you'll be offered continuing work anyways - they're just stringing you along until they get someone else lined up. The problem for you is how to leave without a penalty - correct? (PS -you're not an Indian national per chance?).
If you are talking of the BMSI - well, they are not kids .. they know the stuffDita wrote:At the last week of my probationary period, my immediate manager told me that he would like to extend my probationary period since my performance doesn’t meet his expectation. I told him that I’m not agreeable to this decision.
Then two days later, 2 HRs and me had a meeting regarding the extension of my probationary period. We didn’t get the agreement.
Since all the notifications are verbal, I asked HR for the written notification. One hour after the expiry of my probationary period, HR sent me an email with the exact decision of probation extension.
Hrs and me had another meeting one day after the expiry of my probationary period. I was told that the extension of probationary period is by default without my confirmation. I still need two (2) months notice period if I would like to resign my job.
My contract states that ‘If your employment is not to be confirmed, this Employment Contract will cease and determine on the last day of the probation period and no further payment need to be made by BMSI in respect of such termination.’
What confuse me is that the written notification of extension happened after the expiry of my probationary period, what is the state of my employment? Is it true that I’m still under probationary period?
Is this legal or normal here in singapore? Can anyone please recommend a decent lawyer if necessary?
