  1. #1

    Default my boss/agent MIA

    Erm.. dun know how to start,

    My Boss is MIA!!!

    I am working in Dubai, as every1 know… now is a bad day for construction industry or any Industry…
    Usually I get my salary on end of the month but last month, my boss call me and tell us that he is facing some problem…
    He only manage to give us the salary on 5th… anyway.. this is ok for me…

    But yesterday my Coll (2 of them) starting to call him and wan to ask him regarding the salary issue… he didn’t pick up the phon…
    He is base on Sg and the company in registered in Dubai, UAE.

    What if…if…just if… my boss really disappear?? Can I take any action against him??
    as the company is registered under UEA, Dubai??
    will MoM in Sg take care of such issue??

    I know I am too Kia Se .. but Ministry of Labour here is kind of….sxxx… (u know what I mean)…

    Bro, looks like you are in real trouble, stop thinking n do not wait further, call the MOM and chk it out and better make sure you get hold of your BOSS contact, add and etc...

    It is dangerous to attempt to enforce consequences unless you have made it absolutely CLEAR what is important to you.

    the thing is what can mom do? this is in dubai out of their jurisdiction. unless ts is working for a sg company that is in dubai. and even then what mom can do is very limited. best to talk to your boss' boss and then figure out the situation. contracts right now in dubai are just paper, ts you yourself know this since i'm sure since u're on the ground there and more aware of this than i am that execs and business men are just abandoning everything in dubai and just flying off thanks to the crunch. actually can i ask u something? how's the economic situation in dubai right now? is it business as usual or has everything ground to a halt? i know alot of construction projects now have completely stopped since the country has been so dependent on credit to get the financing for all the big building works...

    contracts here is really just a paper.. and the MoM here aka MoL... dun really know how to do their job...need not to tell.. their MoM kind of sux..and it won't help much to report to them..

    the company is in dubai.. not sg.. but the boss is Sg'ren...anyway.. this is not importent.. i guess MoM in Sg cannot do anything outside Sg...

    thing is still going on.. Gov project is as usual... but you can get fire anytime... many of my friend went back... each month will be news like ah beng lost his job... ah beng2 lost his job...ah beng Jr. lost his job...

    i was worry i am going to lost my job last month... but now i worry that i am not getting pay...

    i think we will just keep calling our boss... that the only thing now..

    if thing get worst.. i will just come back Sg and start over again...

    good thing is ... i can follow outting with fellow CSer...wahhaha

    P.S: i gonna kill my boss!!1st...

    ask ur colleagues what they wanna do. no point sticking with a sinking ship. you can write to mom here and let them know what your boss has done. they might be able to track him down but don't expect much from their end.

    Sounds pretty bad and helpless. But if the ship is sinking... You might as well sink with a scream. Try to be heard at least Go to which ever authority and see how things goes.. You never knows unless you try

    wow. never resort to killing. stating it hear can be an evident in case anything like that happened.

    whatever your situation maybe, just make sure you're ready to eject yourself safely out of dubai. nothing much you can do. you decide... to stay on or to get away.

    I am curious.... is your company still operating and your boss just MIA or the company is at standstill because your boss MIA. Sorry if I too kapoh. I just curious what the situation is like there. I've read many reports that people just pack up and left. Leaving behind home, car etc... and tons of debt.
