Hello, I am currently COO for a danish company stationed in Singapore. I have been asked to transfer to UK to take on the MD role for UK and Ireland - which I am not too happy with....... In Singapore I have 3 months notice according to my employment contract. I have two questions: 1. If I sign the UK employment contract but 'resign' before I start, is that possible without being sued from the company? Or this there any other legal rights I should consider? The start date in London will be around 15 Aug. 2. I have not resigned my Singapore job, but if I sign the UK employment contract, will the Singapore contract automatically be void? This transfer is within the same company.....
No, the company has not yet terminated my employment in SIN. This is an internal transfer but I will get a new UK employment contract. My big concern is, if I sign the next few days but resign before I start the employment in UK (aug 15th) can they sue me? If I dont sign I am sure they will terminate my employment contract in SIN, which is fine..... My intention is of course to 'buy time' and just sign the new UK contract and then resign before start up...... hope this clarifys
