verbal employment contract and i'm threatened by subpoena for my resignation

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

I'm currently working as an auditor of an auditing firm with caters SME clients.  I agreed to be compensated by reasonable amount and I am expected to render 1 year in service. To be a regular employee, I must be trained for 3 whole months.

I've been working here for 2 months now and no written employment contract was furnished, only verbal agreement.

Now, I am going to resign for personal reasons and not for another employment. And I am now threatened to be brought into legal action. I found out that employees who didn't complete the said 1 year period were given "subpoena".

Is it lawfull that I will be given subpoena though I haven't signed any written employment contract? Please help. I'm just a newbie in the world of employment. Sad

it will be hard for them to prove that you have an agreement as you have no written contract.. and as you said, you did not sign anything... so go ahead and resign, just render 30 days notice.

Thank you so much. Just what I thought.
Tinatakot talaga kami. Palibhasa mostly fresh graduate ang mga employees dito at ang kapatid ng partner ng firm ay lawyer na office nila ay katabi lang ng.
