What should I do if my employer attempts or threatens to send me home when I have an outstanding salary claim?

If you have a valid salary claim, you should make a claim as early as possible as this will give you a higher chance of recovering the salaries owed to you.

If your employer sends you to the airport without paying your salary, you should approach the immigration officers at the airport for help.

You should not be afraid of making a claim even if employer threatens to send you home. MOM will allow you a chance to find alternative employment if you have a valid claim and enforcement actions will be taken against errant employers.
