With this kind of attitude, it is no wonder that you were selected for artificial retrenchment.

OP here who was let go. I am not that guy who commented part b/uni never teach. Anyway, I am aware of my rights, but insisting on my legal rights in this industry may not bode well for me in the future. As mentioned, the industry is small and would I want to go against a firm with infinitely more resources than I do? Definitely not. I just wanted to gather practical advice on how to move forward from here.

Thanks for all the responses so far.

your instincts are correct.

your next employer may contact your current firm to conduct a reference check.

I think - no need to fear. Going through the TADM and Employment Claims Tribunal claims processes are quite affordable, and although TADM does drag, it's not for that long. I don't see any issues with stating your legal rights in a firm but reasonable manner. Don't see reasonable law firms elsewhere seeing your doing that as an issue.

Oh but true about the reference check. You'd probably want to negotiate in a calm and reasonable way, without agitating your employer. You may have to accept something less - e.g. a shorter notice period, in order for a little more comfort that your ex-employer might be less inclined to give you an unfavourable reference.

Also, not everyone checks references from the candidate's previous firm, so there's some further uncertainty to this option.

u got retrenched la bodoh

if they didnt make it clear to u that they will pay u salary in lieu which is ur right

then put it in writing to them la

any issues just nego first

cannot settle then go tadm

dont post about it online with identifying details

dont sue for your salary in lieu

this is why lawyers shouldnt act for themselves. client owe/owed money they know what to do. ownself owe/owed money they kalang kabok

the funniest kinds are the divorce/poha ones. for client they can summon the dragon the tiger all. then the very same ones kena cheated on or stalked/harassed they curl up one corner and cry

malu ttm

No, but a nearby firm 200m away located in a building that rhymes with KFC.
