EMPLOYER THREATENED TO GIVE RESIGNING STAFF (WHO’S SERVING NOTICE), A BAD REFERENCE

I submitted my resignation letter after tolerating all the intimidation, micromanaging and taunting for close to 3 years. I was also hinted to leave by my manager and her boss recently.

After I tendered, they became much more passive aggressive and insulting. I was given an ultimatum to complete a detailed list of all of my work within less than a day as I was informed at night and they wanted it the morning after.

If not, they threatened to give me a bad reference to all my future employers. As I tendered right on the date where I’m able to get my bonus, they also told me that my bonus will decrease because of my departure.

Is there anyone who has been through something similar and how did you deal with handling such unprofessional people?

I’ve thought of going to MOM but that is more on wages rather than workplace harassment.

I really think Singapore as a whole need to have better employee welfare policy or implement the 2 weeks notice period like the US does. Especially in my case where using logic to rebut any unreasonable request won’t work.

Netizens’ comments

  • Workplace harassment is covered under MOM as well. The department you should be looking for is Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM).
  • You may also want to check if your company is unionised, if it is, you can seek out the respective union for advice.
  • You could have drawn a line right from the start. No point making a report to MOM now. Wish you the best for your next job and know your rights as an employee.
  • Keep all the evidence and lawyer up.
