Legal requirements of severance pay

I've been working for a difficult employer. He's dictated that I take a 75% pay cut for the company to survive. As far as I'm concerned it will mean that I can't survive, so why would I agree to such terms. I've tried to negotiate a compromise but he will have none of it. It's take it or leave. At 25% pay I am better off leaving now and taking whatever severance at 100% rate.

My question is if he provides formal notice of termination and it states that I have one month's notice by either party, is the notice period considered to be a calendar month from the date of notification or from the end of the current pay month in which the notice is given i.e. notice given on 2-Jul-2020 with an end date of 2-Aug-2020 or end date is 31-Aug-2020, which is the end date from this current pay month.

I'm also not a Singaporean citizen, I'm a remote working employee with a Singapore contract. Does this allow him to abscond from his responsibilities and could I pursue him if through Ministry of Manpower if he attempts to.

Thanks for all advice.

Take 25% pay and go to work once a week. Meanwhile, look for other job opps.

You can approach the Ministry of Manpower.

Interesting proposition except that it's a C-level role, you can't just lead some of the time. I'm already looking for job opps, or more to the point, it's a matter of not ignoring head hunters.
