But some companies will close one eye. so, depends on your company HR policy.
I have not taken mc for a few years in my first job but fallen ill twice in the period i serve 1 mth notice
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!
I also had my farewell lunch hosted by my ex boss, a few weeks later, i changed my mind and withdraw my resignation And a few months later, its my ex boss turn to hand in the letter, and our turn treat her farewell lunch
That is very nice. If only our situation could be better.
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.

It did not happened leh, my guess is her boss did not buy her good lunch
i left my previous jobs... like a boss..
and my bosses always try to get me to come back.
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
