Resignation problem, Resignation letter was “not acknowledged” instead of “rejected”, asked to do it after long weekend because unfair to have holiday during notice period.
Because they want to follow company’s rule instead of MOM’s rule, they let me report to MOM.
Reported to MOM through Employment Act Violation, currently trapped because notice period is more than 2 months even though I am a low level employee.
Wondering if I should just pay in lieu of notice since it’s so toxic? In the meantime, is there anything else I can do other than reporting to MOM?
- Resignation doesn’t need to be acknowledged or accepted. It’s just recommended as proof of when you gave notice. Just follow up by email to record that you submitted notice.
- No company has the right to decline, reject, or ignore your resignation. Even if they refuse to look at the letter, don’t open your email, it’s submitted and you can leave right at the end of your notice period.
It’s a one-person decision. You want out, you get to be out.
- Bruh there is nothing unfair. That’s nonsense from the company. You just note down the date you sent them the resignation, calculate the last day, then just don’t turn up afterwards.
