This Check Out Memo mainly involves resignation, dismissal, expiry of contract, resignation due to illness, etc. The main purpose of doing this COM is to protect the legal status of labor visa holders from being blacklisted by Malaysia Immigration. If the employer fails to declare COM, it will affect your quota for applying for a maid in the future and you will also need to pay a fine.
