MONEYLENDERS CALLS UP WORKPLACE, COMPANY REFUSE TO ISSUE SALARY

Debt with moneylenders who called up my workplace

Advertisements

Hi need some legal advice as I’m caught up with some work issues here.

So my workplace, which has a history of delaying payments to many other workers (not just me) has taken this opportunity to further delay my salary and explictly told me they will not pay me unless I settle the issue with the moneylender.

Is this even legal? How am I supposed to pay the moneylenders when my pay is held up?

Additionally, the HR personnel of my company, whom I tried to liase with to get a direct hold of the payroll in charge has blocked me on WhatsApp when I inquired regarding this said problem.

Could anyone assist me on how to approach this matter and which authorities (spf, mom etc.) I could follow up with!! Thank you so much in advance!

Here are what netizens think:

  • Definitely MOM. It’s also possible to go to court if delayed payment is not mentioned in your contract.
  • I have heard MOM prioritises late payment of salary cases. Can try bringing up to them.
  • You can make a threat to the boss and say that you’ll blow it up on social media or the MOM should they not release your pay.Your pay is yours, your debt is personal. These 2 issues do not intertwine.Go seek help from MOM and they will guide you accordingly. However this will take months of investigation so they may delay your salary even further.I will also encourage you to leave the company ASAP.
  • MOM have strict laws on payroll matters. Salary should not be be delayed, more so if the circumstances are external.As for the debt collectors, they should not be calling the workplace, though they do that to apply more pressure, the company should know how to handle it; telling the collectors that they don’t have the right to do so and any more unsolicited calls will be reported to the police.
