Default Confused - is it the right practice or am I shortchanged by employer?

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me understand this situation:

I've been on a contract job with a company that requires me to perform duties on a daily basis and whenever there's an event (I'm considered an independent contractor that somehow worked like a full time administrator and runner of the company). The contact officially ended months ago and I've continued working on the same terms without a written contract.

Recently I was informed that workload will be decreased and I'll be given a lower pay (I'm now an independent contractor handling only 2 particular projects from this company). I will not need to work on a daily basis. Hence, on the day that I was informed, the arrangement started (i.e. i was informed of pay cut at the start of the month and pay cut began in that month).

I used to work on a project when working on a daily basis and was in the midst of working on it when told of the pay cut. But I was also asked to do a proper hand over of the details for the project. Morally i think it's only right to do that. I'm also facing requests to hand over things that I've done before which I'm no longer paid for doing now.

I'm only getting a little confused because I feel like i've been ordered to handover properly. But am I really obliged to do all these handover when these projects were taken away without any notice period given by the company?

Default contract for service vs contract of service

You need to determine if you were performing a "contract of service" (ie employment) or "contract for service". Did this company contribute to CPF? What about IR8?
You need to determine the precise terms that bind you and this company.
Why don't you see a lawyer? It will cost you approx SGD 300 for a consultation but you will know for sure your position. If need be, you can then send a demand letter to this company.

All the best.

I'm performing a contract for service. As there's no written contract, I'm not sure of the terms anymore. I'll probably just meet up with the company and talk it through. Thanks!
