A maid took to social media wanting to know if she should be paid for the extra Sunday she worked when her employers were overseas. In a post to Facebook group FDW in Singapore (working conditions forum), the maid asked if it was fair for her employer to not fully compensate her for the days she worked.

In her post on Thursday (Dec 1), which has since been taken down, the maid wrote that she had an agreement with her employer for a yearly vacation.

An expatriate about to leave Singapore for a job in another country took to Reddit to ask if he’ll get into legal trouble if he does not do what his landlady has asked. The expat used his Reddit account, u/Dr-Fat, and wrote that his landlady will not return the security deposit on the condo unit he leased from her, as he is leaving with less than two months’ notice.

The expat, who used to work in Singapore, was laid off. He at first tried to find another job within the country, which is why he did not tell the landlady at once that he might leave. Instead, he found work in another country, which made it necessary to leave in a month, which he did tell the landlady. However, she has already found a new tenant, one who will pay a higher rental fee.
