Termination of Employment Contract

Question

Dear HR Professionals,

I have a staff who did not turned up to work for more that (2) continuous days, the company reserves the rights to terminate the employment contract without notice.

Can the company claim back the notice in-lieu from the staff?

There is a such an avenue via Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM). Employer can lodge a claim.

Yes, treat it as breaking of contract due to AWOL. Can claim notice pay. Can file claim against employee with MOM.

Yes, because staff breach the employment contract and he is liable for the notice in lieu.

If the employee is covered under the Employment Act, you may recovered salary in lieu of notice from him/her for breach of employment terms as follows:

-Absent from work continuously for more than 2 working days without approval and a good excuse.
-Absent from work continuously for more than 2 working days without informing and attempting to inform your employer of the reason.
