Most people might not know this, but I have been working without a contract for almost a year now. See, when I started working in HSPJ, they offered me a contract which was supposed to be renewed annually, since they did not have the means to offer me a permanent post then. But the current management under KB have ignored to renew the last one which expired June 2006, let alone offer me a permanent post, despite my repeated requests. I have even met personally with KB regarding this issue. All he could tell me that time was “since HSPJ has this ongoing financial difficulties, it would be unwise for me to request KUB to offer me a permanent job right now, so we will bring up this issue when the time is right.”
First of all, KUB doesn’t care who is permanent and who is on contract basis. I joined HSPJ after an interview with HSPJ’s HR, not KUB HR. It’s up to HSPJ management to determine my status, not KUB.
Second, if he does not want to change my contract status, would it kill him just to draft a letter extending my contract for another year?
Since I am legally ‘not’ HSPJ staff right now, even though I’m still getting my basic pay and all, can I *ehem* give 24-hour notice and resign? My so-called contract then stated a 1-month notice, but that one expired June 2006.. so…. can I? 🙂
Anybody interested in hiring? I’m highly adaptable to different work needs, practical, able to go solo or thrown in group discussions, ability to communicate with all levels blablabla..
