maybe she should just be herself and deal with the consequences. but what if she goes on this date, find out they really like each other and stay together? that'd be a fun ending.

I'm not sure about Singapore, but in the US if you quit you often don't get a severance pay and cannot collect unemployment. I'm sure there is some reason that they are trying to be fired instead of quitting.

You don't even get a severage package in the UK if your fired! I can imagine Singapore will be like most places whereby you can't claim any unemployment benefit either at all or for a significant period.

If you get fired in Singapore, the company has to give you 1 to 2 months pay depending on the contract you signed when you first joined. If you resign, you have to serve at least a month notice; otherwise you'll have to pay the company. As a Singaporean myself, wanting to get fired is a very risky move as organizations here often don't hire anyone who has been fired before. Not worth the risk, in my personal opinion.

... But being fired is going to make it harder to get a job in the future. I don't know, maybe OP was looking for a different job but no one was hiring so they thought it would be best to just live on unemployment. I think we need a follow up.

She wants severance. Freaking gold digger.

Technically you can only collect unemployment if the reason you were fired is unjust. Doing stupid things to get yourself fired doesn't count. OP just man up and quit. It'll look better on your jobs record anyway.

How are they a gold digger? I'm pretty sure if you didn't want a job and you wanted a new one you would want to get payed for the time you are applying for a new job. They aren't a gold digger, they are just being smart!

There is absurdly nothing they can do about it if they want to look for a new job. They have no reason to tell the employer until they want to quit.

can't get unemployment if you quit. check your state laws though OP. If you get fired for cause (ie. sexual harassment) you won't be eligible for unemployment

There are pros and cons for both getting fired and quitting. People who work in companies that issue severance packages don't want to "quit" for the fear of losing it.

My boyfriends job if he left he would have to pay 20,000 dollars if he quit because of fees involved with his contract. If he got fired he wouldn't have to pay any of that...

There's sometimes benefits that happen when you get fired. My aunt was the vice president of a company, and when she got fired they gave her $100,000 salary to her for a year under the contract she didn't start new employment for that time. (She made that contract before taking the job.)

Because they are schemy as fuck. Enjoy sucking yer boss's dick OP, I hear it's a few steps beyond ass kissing ;] Seriously if you wanna get fired (instead of quit) there are less depraved ways that do not involve damaging your integrity. Some people though, in the same planet where some are struggling to find a job to sustain themselves, we have people like this...
