Just my 2 cents:

In most companies I worked for, Notice of 3 months is for those at M level or higher.

I don't know about Financial markets, so I can't comment, but in other places I worked, or had dealings, it was always 1 month

Now, even with a 3 month notice period, what makes you think they will keep her employed if she stepped on too many toes ? As I said, if she badly needed the job, she should have learnt to suck it up -alas, she didn't seem to have done it, and you are demanding something like she be employed regardless she is easy to work (or even if the boss is not easy to work with ..)

Now, even if she had a 3 month notice, there are a hundred clauses that can lead to her being terminated, with a 1 day notice. Heck, they can make up stuff, if the company is mad enough to rid her - stuff like late to work, extended lunch break, leaving early .. and .. well, browsing internet - can all be cause for immediate termination, if they really wanted her out promptly

Get over it .. that's all I can say


I heard that companies get tax/other benefits from govt if they recruit new people i.e. create employment. So they deliberately take and fire new employees often. I heard such things happening in other countries. I suspect my wife is a prey of this strategy of abusing the system. This is happening for the second time.

Not in Singapore!
On the contrary, the employer was lucky that they didn't have to pay (to MoM) the levies for hiring a WP or S-Pass holder, since DP holders are excempted from it.
But personal incompatibility (i.e. her boss didn't like her) is a legitimate reason for termination, especially during the probation period. This being the second time would make me think that your wife might be part of the problem ...

Really ? Can you quote some source ? Maybe you are just thinking out of the box, very much out of the box ..

I have heard repeatedly that staff who cannot with their supervisors, or staff who decide they know more than the boss, or staff who think the company will be broke without them .. and go on to fix things etc. etc. get fired promptly

Which of this happened now ??

This scheme does apply to people hired from abroad and allows tax deduction of relocation and recruitment expenses. DP holders who are already here, like your wife, are not eligible.
In addition, the scheme was terminated several months ago.
What are you trying to tell us?
