In the first place, is that your jobscope? If it's not as what you're being told to do, eg being said is admin assistant but they asked you to clean windows etc only. In short, if there's a misrepresentation, then maybe you can bring it up to MOM. But I'd advise you to elaborate further before even compensating an amount which you may not even need to and/or straight away blow it up.

Re: How to quit a 3 month contract job?

The jobscope is picking and packing medicine but i didnt expect to be pressing the tablets out the whole day. The person from the agency told me i will doing packing the medicine for half day and will be doing other things the next half.
If i know about the pressing the tablets out thing, i would not sign the contract.

Re: How to quit a 3 month contract job?

You have to read the fine print of the employment contract that you had signed thoroughly.

Some will state that you are liable to pay some compensation if you do not complete your contract.

If nothing is stated about that, just give a period of notice of your intention to quit as stipulated in the contract

the person took the contract away? tat shouldn't even be the case, they must always issue u wif a copy of the contract. did u go thru agency? which agency did u go thru? payback only $200, r u sure?

if ur agent is from recruit express / kelly service, i believe the contract will state that u r still allow the quit provided u give them a 1week notice (they always give mi a 3mths contract though i only want to work for 2mths during my sch holiday, therefore i always leave early).

They should have a copy of your contract for you as a reference. Where you signed this contract from?

Well based on what you mentioned, doing other things half a day, then probably you got to ask what isit.

Anyway, yours is manual pressing of medicine, without any equipment and only with glove-d hands?

Re: How to quit a 3 month contract job?

P.S:
u can also approach ur supervisor for advise. just ask them for permission to leave the company. coz this contract is just between u and the company. if they allow u to leave, then it shouldn't be any problem at all.

btw TS do u wan to work in this medical industry? in a clinic as a assistant? pay is ard $5-8/hr depending on how long u stay (can still continue even during ur studies, after school can work from 6-11pm?). the training probably takes ard 1-2week (on job training)?

I am not under probation. I sign the contract at their company called cmc.

They say the half day will maybe be doing handling phone calls etc, i think that person also not sure. Feel been cheated..

Re: How to quit a 3 month contract job?

since the contract is by their company, it would make things even better. ask superior directly for permission to leave. u dun have to come up with any excuse. just directly tell them that this isnt the type of job u are looking for and thus wishes to leave. (DO NOT take the initiative to tell them tat u r willingly to break the contract)

only ask them how much is it to break the contract if they do not allow u to leave.

Re: How to quit a 3 month contract job?

btw, this also teaches u a lesson that NEVER take on a contract without knowing the content and the jobscope(if it is just 1mth or so, just endure it).

always ask if u are allowed to leave early (cook up some excuse such as school holiday ends in 2mths time and say that u can onli work for 1-2mths even though the contract states a min. of 3-5mths). and also wad are the penalty for leaving early.

as part timer u should always do the above (based on my experience). i broke my "contract" at least 3 times (2x with recruitment agent), but had paid no penalty. in all 3 cases, my supervisor was the 1 who allowed mi to leave. (P.S stayed no more than 1week for all 3jobs)

Only compensation. But look, you gotta know how to search for the loopholes and discuss it. Like what you say, the "other" means picking up calls doing general work, nothing about manual pressing of medication.

Re: How to quit a 3 month contract job?

Thanks for the advices. i'll be extra careful next time.

But now, I dont have the contract form with me and the agency person refuse to answer my call/sms.
What is a good way to quit the job? And, How does the agency collect the compensation fee?

as stated by jjk... onli compensation.. nvr heard of cmc b4... anyway, next time go to recruit express or kelly service. at least go to agency which are more well known... no doubt u will definitely hear complains abt them from many, but tats onli becoz they have alot of ppl and u cannot expect everybody to be happy with wad they are given, there will always be complains...

Rest assured they won't bring it to the court, the jurisdical process is going to take months and years, but meanwhile like what others had said, try to talk to the HR department or just let the relevant department know this isn't what you are looking for.

Worry not about the compensation, and if can, request for a copy of employment contract, by right they should have given you some black and white, not only to protect you but also themselves.

Btw how old are you this year? if you are below 21, you need a gurdian to countersign if it involves any employment or legal documents.

Worst come to worst, call 1800 741 6388 to inform the media.
