i want to know whether i can cancl the wp from my homeland. i do not want to pay my company cos they cheated me by saying one thing and giving another thng. wat can the company do to me if i do not pay. also i had already returned to my homeland and will not be visiting aor taking up any job in malaysia forever.
somebody pls help me wit a solution. is there anything to worry. pls be open.
First of all, there is no such agreement or contract that can hold up in a court of law whereby an individual is NOT allowed to resign or to submit a letter of resignation in order to go home for whatever reason it may be.
Yes, some compensation may be due (cost to apply for permits and other small costs) but penalizing someone and demanding payment as compensation is a no go.
They cannot do anything to you if you choose to work in another country. Its a free market economy and they CANNOT force you to stay if you choose not to.
I don't think you can cancel the work permit; only the company can to avoid people resigning, and joining another company in malaysia.
But otherwise, i wouldn't worry too much about it, esp. if you don't have plans to come back and work in malaysia.
If someone ask's why you are not working in malaysia anymore, just say the previous company defaulted on their promises and agreement you had signed and broke the contract so you resigned and left.
