    I think U can get a ticket and return liao
    If not continue to work and not paid, very "loo-gi".
    Even if it means paying for your own return ticket, as I doubt the company or your boss will be able to pay for you if they really run away.
    Cut your loss early?

    Understood... Cause I've read a report that some staff actually pickup where the boss left and carried on operations as the company have contracts and are obligated to continue... maybe they "took over" the company???

    Anyway, I wish you good luck.

    Well, plan for your exit. You wont get paid anyway.

    It is not difficult to look for people in spore., but even if you found him face to face, what can you do? if his company is folding in and he planed for his exit way in advance, even mom cant do much.

    Do not think mom is the almighty pai kia. They also have to follow law and if the law has its loopholes, there is nothing much they can or will do to help individuals.

    Is there a brick and mortar office in Singapore? Your contract may be with a Dubai registered entity, but if that entity owns assets in Singapore, that could be the subject of a claim.

    Agreed. What can the TS do even if he finds the boss in SGP? No money also cannot pay.

    Time to stop work and cut loss liao, buy ticket to come back. your boss wont answer the call since he has already ran away.

    read on ST that some people buy and max out the credit cards, leave car at airport and return to their countries as their companies closed down.

    at dubai its really bad!! trust me on that. major constructions are halt and some clients whom paid 50% deposit cant complete projects so got the $$ forfeited

    You got the full salary, we call it a fortunate case in the unfortunate situation. But such an incident is a morale stopper. Unless you wish to be in more exciting situation again, personally will suggest you start thinking about your future

    Your other colleagues that got half the salary will probably already have a good idea where they are heading for

    Uncontactable superior in my point of view is absolutely unacceptable. It is the responsibility of the superior to be ahead of the employees and answer their doubts when it arise. Failure to do so shaken the confidence of the subordinates. It will be consider negligence if knowing there is already a hoohaa going on and yet he/she did not appear to salvage the situation and use a middleman to pass information. I totally see it as a irresponsible attitude in handling the case and on the verge of disappearance.

    My 2 cents worth
