Foreign manager exerts pressure on pregnant Singaporean to resign from job
Posted by temasektimes on July 16, 2012
My wife, who is recently been confirmed of her pregnancy was been “Forced” to terminated by her “FT” GM. The whole issue is such that, my wife was admitted to 02 dayz in hospital and upon discharge 1 week resting on bed.(as advice by doctor). Her “FT” GM employer indirect hint to my wife to “resign” herself, saying she is under-perform, while she is a confirmed staff.
During her 1 week my wife shall rest, instead she go back to work, to clear the workers salary and to assit the accountant. Despite this, she was been under constant “hint & Pressure” to resign, although my wife still report for work.
We went to seek the MOM officer for assistance, but was told that no “termination letter”, MOM is not able to look into it further. So came that final day, my wife was been force to surrender all her duty, her office keyz and the employer did not even issue her the termination letter.
I call it Discrmination of Preganat woman in workplace. After that the company MD step in to compensate my wife, and ask her to sign a letter of agreement. Worst, offer her to work as part-timer. (What a joke). As singaporean, I feel we are screw by the System. Now , my wife is out of job, and during that hand over, the “FT” GM even force hurt my wife, we called the police, but there is no action, just verbal warning only.
May I ask the PM-Mr. Lee, how to have family planning? Due to extreme stress my wife is hospitalised now. (Baby is in danger). Period.
