    Can the TS complain to MOM? AWS is not compulsory. Unless the advice here to complain to MOM is with regards to the excuse of the GST increase.

    Do you know how AWS or the so called 13th month bonus comes by? Every year, there are 52 weeks. For proper labour accounting, 1 Work Month is computated as 4 weeks of labour. Hence the 13th Month is to supplement the additional 4 weeks that we had work. What has this to do with GST?

    Aha,

    From http://www.iras.gov.sg/ESVPortal/gst...+input+tax.asp

    * The goods or services are used or to be used for the purpose of your business.
    * The input tax is directly attributable to taxable supplies or out-of-scope supplies which would be taxable if made in Singapore
    * The input tax claims must be supported by tax invoices addressed to you, or simplified tax invoices. For imports, the claims should be supported by import permits which show you as the importer of the goods
    * The input tax claims are not disallowed expenses under regulation 26 and 27 of the GST Act (General Regulations)

    2. Disallowed Expenses

    Go back to your emplyment contract... AWS is usually mentioned in there, it should be compulsory. Bonus is dependent on Company's performance.

    AWS is not a must have. It depend on company. I know of at least 2 BIG companys (MNC) that does not pay AWS. Best is to check employment contract.

    Feel sorry to hear that. To be frank, not many companies are making good profits as inflation is gushing in real hard (in recent months) on raw materials and supplies. Salaries and wages are on the standstill for many SME(s) as they remain apprehensive about the impact of price hikes. The premature hikes in prices are all fear induced and is causing a domino effect.

    A company cutting off AWS could be a sign of it trying to salvage itself from the reds or over-expenditure by the big boss on silly investment. The company can choose to go chapter 11 or declare no bonus and let employees stay employed for as long as it takes to pull it back up in the blacks.

    Meanwhile, keep a look out for good hiring firms and keep in touch with headhunters and friends in the HR circle.

    As for the labor authority, they would not interfere if the said company was able to substantiate the cause. Employee contracts wouldn't hold a hair if a company tactfully earased the bank account(s) to declare a liquidation status. I had dealt with such a firm and helped employees fought for salaries. It wasn't easy to prove otherwise even though the authorities try to sympathise with a kind heart.

    May you be blessed.

    Ya lor.

    If you are young and experienced...throw letter nebermind.
    But,
    If you are above 35 and getting high pay....throw letter, company happy.


    Then you will have a hard time to find job again.

    Nowadays some companies practice ageism....and no one is indispensible.
    Cheap labour workers can replace you anytime.


    Job Security??
    Yeah...back in the 80s.
