Actually I did, and it has the clauses and everything. But I would say it was a letter of acceptance from the agency & NOT the emplyment contract from the company itself?
But the paper that i sign has has clauses stating, if signed this acceptance letter and never turn up for work it will be taken has no show thus breaching the contract and have to pay liquidated damages of 1 month salary! I already informed the agentI want to retract in them most apologetic and gracioous manner, but she say too bad you already sign it!
You guys think the agency will pursue with lawyers? Any advice please!

Interesting...I have never heard of such a thing. Have found jobs through 3 agents so far and there was always only a contract between me and the hiring coy. This is very strange...

I have a similar situation.. I signed an agreement service with the employment agency and another contract with my company. 4 days into the job,I wanted to resign because there was no training provided,even when they specifically said that they will provide training for those with no experience. Basically, the "training" is that I do what I can and if I had any problems,I ask someone. That really bothers me because I am dealing with biohazard materials which should not be taken lightly. My company stated that I need to give 2 weeks notice if I want to resign,but the agency requires me to work for 3 months or else I have to pay a month's salary. I talked to the recruiter and he said that the training is actually subjective to the supervisor,therefore cannot be a reason for my resignation. I have to work for 3 months or else I have to pay. I go to work anxious because I was not shown the proper way to perform my job and basically I'm winging it everyday. Is there a way out of the agreement service with the agency? Any advise is helpful. Thank you.

This is pretty straightforward, i don't understand why do you need to ask.
Report to NEA and MOM and find a new job.
Your case is no training available with handling of bio hazard material. Provide photos and videos and emails. Get them to interfere. Then complete your 3 month's and move on.

You cant expect the job description to be entirely true. They can anyhow put but during job, different story, such as doing a different job which is not mention in job description or like your case, no training provided. Never expect the the work to be exactly as what is mentioned in description. I can see two options for you.

First, you just do what you can, slowly learn and keep asking someone questions on your work procedures and endure for 3 months or pay that 1 month salary and leave.

Is that a sme or mnc company?

Dont give stupid advice pls, this is regarding training which was mentioned but not provided and it is dealing with biohazard chemicals. Dont give this kinda blind sheep advice follow this kinda arbirtary 3 months clauses or pay salary.

To OP just serve your 2 weeks notice and leave, dont pay the 1 month salary. If recruitment agency threaten you, they also end up wont do ****. End of the day the mentioned training to deal with biohazard was also not given they wont dare and cant do ****. Know your rights. Speaking as someone who quit a role in the 2nd week of the job.
