Your brother agree & sign with recruit express which allow them to sue your brother.

For whatever reason your brother quit, recruit express has the reason to seek for compensation.

If your brother is fire by company due to always late for work, MC & etc, recruit express has the reason to seek for compensation.

However if your brother is fire by company due to work performance, I don't think that recruit express has the reason to seek for compensation.

End of day before recruit express sue your brother, they must produce supporting documents that they lost money due to your brother termination by self or company in order to sue your bother.

Mostly it does not worth the time & money for recruitment firms to fight law case with candidate for this small thing.


My brother signed a letter of intent with recruit express.it states "should i fail to report for work or resign within 90 days from commencement date , i shall pay them "$****80% of 1 month salary". After starting work for a month, my brother does not like his present job scope and his manager also feel he is not suitable so they intent to terminate him.the problem is recruit express agent tell my brother he will have to pay if he gets terminated within 3 month. He say it is one of the clause. But after looking at his letter of intent, it only say you have to pay one month if you resign within 90 days. Is it true that if you get terminated by company within 90 days, recruit express can sue you if you dunt pay them back one month?anyone have experience on this?

I see, thank you for your reply! I didn't agree to any job offers, and in fact I rejected because the pay is quite sad... Recommend everyone to find their own jobs rather than rely on recruiters. They will push down your pay just to get higher commission. Do not agree to anything, because I find that recruiters tend to push you into agreeing to the job offer immediately without allowing you to think about it. Got so turned off by some recruiters who will tell you that if you don't agree like immediately, you will lose the chance.
i agree and totally can understand.

i kena before. really bloody turn off. plus i put can nego. they still insist on that amount really ****er
they keep pushing down ur salary

Every hiring organization had expectation such as hiring budget. If your expected salary is higher then client's budget, it make no sense for agency to recommend you cause client will just reject any way.

A lot of agency recruiters these day are not professional. If you are lucky, they will ask you if your expected salary is negotiable. However what they fail to ask you is how low is your expected salary. So this is when agency recruiters will assume your negotiable part for expected salary will fit into client's budget. I would like to recommend everyone here to inform the agency recruiters what is your lowest expected salary in order to save everyone time.

Some agency have this term to compensate them (cause they give guarantee to company).

So you better check it out.

Apart from basic salary, don't think agency will know the detail of your salary package such as leaves cause company is lazy to share so many information (even if this is direct hire from company & not agency).

Although agent want to close the case fast, there will be a period of time before company HR decided not to offer you if no news.

Well, you are not in a hurry since you have a job now...

thanks ur reply

is there a pole here somewhere about salary/package offer from new job?

what’s the generic offer in terms of % increment & benefits for hopping new job?

personally a minimal 10% increment in salary and matching benefits,
will consider if lesser benefits in annual leaves/telco subs in favor for higher % salary increment, health insurance is a must though

My advice to you is to detach salary package apart from benefits like leave and health insurance. Each organization have their own benefits system like leave and health insurance. HR do not offer you a higher wages just because your current job offer you a better benefits such as more leaves.

As for increment, it depends a lot of factors. For example, mostly you will be earning higher wages in public sector compare to private sector. So instead of increment, you may be looking at decrements if you are joining private sector from public sector. Another factor will be how long have you serve in your current organizations cause you don't expect new employer to give you increment for every few months job hop. 10% is just nice for next job hop if you ask me provided you have 2 years of service in current organization.
