My colleague is suffering from an illness, which might be potential life-threatening illness, the general name of the illness had been identified (in medical report) but the actual cause (i.e. cancer, tumor and etc) has not been identify yet.
As the current position is very time and energy demanding, she wish to resign so that she go for the checking and treatment. The notice period for resignation is 2 months, but she could not wait for 2 months to go for checking.
Is it possible to resign with short notice(i.e. 2 weeks) without paying money in lieu with the reason of the health condition?
Surely, she can discuss her problems with the management and I think the management would be willing to listen if she can convince them with a detailed medical report from her doctor.
Thank you siew, but as you know from my previous post on "right to choose not to go outstation", the company we (me and my colleague) working with company is very Chinaman company, poor benefits, one leg kick, and they apply penalty system(pay $$) for not complete work on time(i.e. fine RM10 per day late) or late coming to office(i.e. RM10 for first slot of 10mins late and RM20 for second slot of 10 mins late and etc) which taking about 10% of our earning on average.
The boss is very rude, whenever he don't like or do not want to approve, he will just shout at us, no respect to our personal time, sorry, describe too much about my company and the business owner.
So, the question is, if the boss not allow early release, what can my colleague do? she has only one medical report from specialist, because she is still pending for more diagnoses.
P/S: Dear all, please do not ask which company I am working with, because I have the obligation to protect my current employer reputation although it was not stated in my EA :p
Come on, surely, this is not the only company in town, one can always look for opportunities elsewhere. Now about your colleague, she should at least make an attempt to discuss the problem with the boss. If he does not agree, I think health is more important. If treatment is so urgent, she can always pay indemnity and go.
