    I spent longer time in the toilet after I handed in my resignation.

    Only came out when someone banged the door.

    Under MOM Rules & Guidelines, the 2.5 weeks is NOT counted towards your 1month notice. So, if you throw it right before your reservist, when you return to work, you have to serve the full 1 month.

    But some companies will close one eye. so, depends on your company HR policy.

    There are many provisions listed in the Employment Act The Employment Act - Ministry of Manpower

    However, note that the Act EXCLUDES managers and executives. Even junior managers and executives earning up to $4,500 per month is only partially covered on basic payment of salary.

    In other words, for folks not covered by the Act, it depends on your contract.

    On one of my previous job, in the last month notice, I experienced hell from the superiors.
    Whatever that is troublesome/messy/complicated, they will assign it to me.
    And they only allow me to "pass" on to the next person my stuff on the last day of my work >.<'

    I really wonder what is the percentage of those who have a good resignation notice experience compared to the bad one.

    Recently that boss has just accused my colleague for performing below standard and had issued him a letter for misconduct!

    And after the farewell lunch, & a few weeks later, your ex boss also changed his mind & withdrew his resignation.

    For me it's goes both ways. After I've completed my part-time diploma at SP, I intended to move up the company using this diploma only to be denied the post in another department because, and I quote my Engineer's words, " You are a valuable asset to the department and therefore we have no choice but deny you the transfer request".

    That's the tipping point for me and found myself another job which requires me to report on the 3rd Jan. Since it was 4 months to that date, I prepared myself and gave him hell before I tender my resignation on the 1st Dec.

    During the exit interview he lectured me on that I was a bad investment and such. Just gave the sly smile. Immediately for the next 3.5weeks I was posted to an ulu site at the corner of Singapore.

    I report work late and went home early as I was not to handle many duties which a deemed sensitive. All I can say I enjoyed it. And my colleagues treat me to a farewell lunch as I was very close to everyone except my engineer.

    12years on and I'm still happily working there.

    A photographer was on a 18 months contract (construction progressive shoot report) with the SG office of a Japan company who are building their factory. 9 months into the job they fired him citing recommendation of internal investigation into "undertable" money though the photographer was not part of the "undertable gang". They paid him the full 18 months as per the contract and 2 months later, he was hired by the Japan company for the same job for the remainding period but with a 20% increase in quote.

    Fired with full payment and rehired with increase in pay and position, this one have to take the cake
