What is a dismissal
Dismissal means that your employer has terminated your contract of service. It may be with or without notice, and on grounds of misconduct or not.
When to appeal
If you feel that your dismissal is unfair, you may submit a written appeal to be reinstated to the Minister for Manpower. The appeal must be received by MOM within one month from the date of dismissal.
If the Minister is satisfied that you were unfairly dismissed, he may order your employer to do one of the following:
- Reinstate you in your former job.
- Pay you a sum of money as compensation.
For managers and executives earning not more than $4,500 a month: If you are dismissed with the necessary notice or salary-in-lieu, you can only appeal if you have served your employer for at least 12 months.
