Default Asia advanced

I encounter a few times I break the rules from a few agency saying that if itís the company who rejected me I go without penalties but one agency Asia advance send me s email telling me to pay my full amount of one month to them or they will issue a lawyer letter and I have to pay for the lawyer fee too. If they really do that I start to feel a bit scare too because first time encounter and Iím unemployed without money now. Will I have to be forced to pay?

Just two weeks into the employment, i was highlighting and mentioning to my agent that this job is not a good fit as wirk n backlogs are tremendous plus company is having a very tight cashflows being unability to pay most suppliers as im in finance line. Many of the chqs are unpresented to suppliers and they just called and called.

I negotiated with them then but they refused to budge or to listen to what i have got to say and is only concern on me if i were to break the bonds then im liable to pay! I was forcing myself to work to complete till 3 months but recently my dad has not been in good health, having persistent diarrhoe and vomitting now and then and i have taken quite a number of unpaid leave attending to him in this case and if company B is to fault and sack me for my attendance, then am i still liable to pay for the bond? I am hoping to call off this job yo be very honest. Appreciate an earnest reply fm anyone who have been in similar shoes. Thanks, helpless

In life there is the brave and foolish, dumb and foolish, brave and smart.

They just trying to do legal intimidation.
Bro it is 3k, not 300k.

Super unlikely they will carry on with legal proceedings. They just blow their trumpet.

Totally not worth their time and money. good chance this is empty threat. If you feel they misrepresent the company and mislead you into signing the agreement, should fight it out.

Most of the time u can get away by ignoring their email.

Does anyone know the process for Civil service?

This is the situation below:
If I signed the offer letter with Statboard A reluctantly, and 1 week later before starting work I receive another offer letter from another government agency (Statboard/Ministry) which is what i really want, is there any penalty for doing such a thing?

My concern is if I will be blacklisted in the gov system, and if the new government agency, during the offer stage, will be able to trace I signed something with Statboard A previously?

Nope, if they are offering you, it means they want you to work in their company. So its alright for you to reject as you have not started working at Statboard A still. Contract only start valid when only you start working.

I applied for a permanent position with company A, BGC the recruitment agency was the third party company that helped company A to source for candidates. So I responded to a job posting on jobstreet posted by BGC, I went for the interview and was selected for the job.

So I have a contract with company A that I signed and I also have a letter of commitment with BGC that I signed.

Anyways I have started on the job with company A, but I find that the job is not suitable for me. There are a few reasons (including the agency and the company not being very truthful with the job description) but I would rather keep this post short.

Basically my contract with company A states that I only have to give them one month's notice failing which I have to compensate 1 month's salary. But my letter of commitment states that I cannot resign within 3 months, if I do I will have to compensate BGC 1 month's salary. I fully intend to serve the 1 month's notice period with company A but as the 3 months period has not passed I will still need to compensate BGC.

So what can I do about this. I really cannot hold on for the full 3 months. has anyone broken the letter of commitment with the agency after giving the required notice as per contract with the company. Did the agency make you pay? Can BGC make me pay? Will they send a lawyer's letter or send someone from a collection agency to knock on my door to serve the lawyers letter. Can they sue me in small claims court?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
The below is not to be considered legal advise.

My personal opinion that BGC may have a weak case against you, claiming damages from you if you terminate your employment with company A less than 3 months period, based on the following assessment:

1) The 3 months retention period cannot be unreasonably incorporated insofar as to impose liability onto you. The BGC letter of commitment was drafted without (a) any intentions to establish legal relationship between BGC and yourself; and (b) there is no proper consideration involved.
2) You cannot be liable for fault due to Company A or BGC.
3) You cannot be liable for reasons, resulting in your resignation, that is beyond your control; and
4) The agency relationship lies between Company A and BGC. If BGC decides to pursue a claim against you, you have a valid recourse to counter-claim against Company A on the claims made by BGC against you.

As such, BGC may have a weak case against you, however, would still be prudent to seek legal advise if the fees are lower than what you may need to pay BGC.

a lot of agencies have this letter to sign nowadays, just don't sign, they need the sales... if your are already shortlisted, then wouldn't withdraw just because you don't sign that letter.

if you passed interview and got the job offer, you ONLY need to sign LOA with the company... not agency. Just ignore any request to follow-up with agency form.
