Training Bond

My company engaged foreign workers under Work Permit and we understand it to be for a period of 2-years.

However, before the completion of 2-years, my staffs tendered their resignation, giving us the required period of notice.

We have invested time and resources on training these workers, is there any ways which we can claim compensation from them? Is there any clauses we can include in the employment contract to prevent such cases from happening again?

The length of the work permit is the valid period where the workers are allowed to work in Singapore, under each pass. Employee has the right to tender resignation based on the notice period stated in the contract, eg one month or one week.

You are not allowed to ask the employee to pay for the on job training you provided during the employment unless if there is any training bond, when you sent your employee to go for specific training, usually external training.
