First of all, I have to thank you for setting up this website that gives hope in life.
The staff at the company I’m working at informed me via a teleconference that I am to be immediately terminated.
I was given two letters. One, my resignation letter and the other, a termination letter.
The reason was spelled out as follow:
1) I am not fit to be a finance manager and I have not fulfilled my duty. I have not given sufficient information to my immediate superior for decision making in business.
2) I am not respectable enough to be the leader of Southeast Asia (Company director)
They are offering me a 3-month ex gratia. And I am required to sign the letter immediately.
They are also giving me garden leave until 30/4.
I refused to sign it and am requesting to seek for other advice.
They have locked my computer password on Monday afternoon.
They are basically making me feel redundant.
I have joined this company as part-time accountant for the past few years.
I became one of the official staff as an associate finance manager later.
I was promoted as a finance manager just few years back.
I worked long hours every day (at least 12 hours), assuming the role of one-man show since the day I joined the Company and has worked beyond my scope.
I only have one new staff reporting to me.
I am asking for one-year salary compensation for my past three years of long working hours for the company.
I am seeking your advice on this matter.
Can the company simply hand me a letter to fire me?
There is no clear reason why I’m fired.
1) There is no prior information notice about me not meeting my expectations.
2) There is no discipline meeting session prior to their decision, which other employees experienced before in our Company.
My position is a finance manager and my monthly salary is SGD $5,000.
I look forward to hearing your your advice and the opportunity to meet you face-to-face.
I would like to know whether I am in the right position to claim and protest.
I am feeling very negative and depressed.
I would like to solve this matter as soon as possible.
