Thanks for the support and guidance you have given to fellow Singaporeans on their job problems.
I am also facing a very bad experience recently on my job and decided to write this email to you and hopefully
you can give me some guidance which would be greatly appreciated.
I work as a contract analyst with an insurance co through an agent.
I start work in June this year and is a one year contract, my job responsibilities include production support and development work in the insurance co IT dept.
For the first 3 months of my work, there were no major problems involved and then suddenly on the last day of August they decided to terminate my contract without giving any valid reasons.
The agent call me up and say they are not happy with my performance and I have to pack and leave within 1/2 hour.
I was at a shock and decided to confront my immediate supervisor ( who is a pinoy) who then impolitely tell me off and say I made a lot of mistakes.
I feel that he is giving all excuses to get rid of me and wanted to chase me out of the company.
Not satisfied with his reasons I managed to check with my boss who is a Singaporean but she only listen to him and does not listen to what I have to say.
I feel that my contract was terminated unfairly without any valid reasons and would like to seek your guidance .
Thanks and regards
Thanks for your mail and sorry to hear of your predicament.
Unfair dismissal is rampant here due to our weak labour legislation.
Employers can terminate a worker’s service without giving any valid reasons especially if the employee is under probation.
There is no proper counselling carried out before termination and our HR is also ill-prepared to do that here.
I urge you to report the matter to MOM and TAFEP.
We should all try to do our best to stop unfair dismissal as its a threat to our livelihood and survival.
Let us know if you need to access our counselling or coaching service.
We are here for you.
