Default Queries about Notice Period

Good Day!

I am a perm staff in my current job. It is stated in my contract that it is mandatory to serve 1 month notice. However, I found a job which I really like but they would like me to join them next week.

May I know if it is possible to tender for 24hrs notice resignation?

Talk with your employer. Some might be good enough let you go without notice period. Worse come to worse, compensate them 1 month of salary and you are free to leave within 24 hrs.

yes, definitely can leave. contract usually state 1 month notice or salary in lieu of notice.

did you ask if the new coy is willing to pay for your short notice?

knew someone whose position wasn't high but his/her new coy was willing to pay for her short notice of half a month. so you might want to just try asking as well.

in my 2nd job my employer offered to buy out my 3 month notice period, including CPF contributions. i ended up serving 2 months notice and was bought out for 1 month.

Yes, definitely. It's a job, not jail sentence.

But be prepared that your bridge to the previous employer will be "burnt" already. No turning back next time.

Just started work at Statboard A two weeks ago but there was a blatant misrepresentation of my key job functions during the interview process. I was supposed to be doing a very specific set of duties but was told there was a major reorg recently before i joined the organisation and im now doing a completely different set of job scopes.

I'm seriously considering throwing letter by the end of this month but i'm just wondering if there is some sort of centralised system within the civil service that i were to apply for other jobs within the cs subsequently, they will be able to find out my that i have tendered after barely working for a month. Kinda worried that i will be blacklisted from future openings within the cs but at the same time, i dun think i have the necessary aptitude, expertise and interest to do this job well, and stay here in the long term.

A related question.

What is the common understanding of 1 month notice?

If I tender on the 1st of the month, does this mean my last day of work will be:

a) 28th/29th/30th/31st of the month (last day of the calendar month)
b) Same day of the following month i.e. 1st of the following month
c) Same day of the following month - 1 day
d) Date of resignation plus 30 days (inclusive of non-working days and weekends)

How to calculate the correct last day based on HR standard?

So if you tender on 1st Feb then on 1st March you are a free man. Like wise.. If tender on 25th Oct, then you are free on 25th Nov. Therefore Feb is the best time to resign.... You get 2 to 3 days discount compared to months like January.
