You could very well approach him or the HR person and ask them to clear all your due's. As it is mentioned in your contract paper's you are eligible for it.
There is nothing to feel bad about getting terminated as it has become way of life today. Sacking people has become an easiest means of showing profit by the organization. So don't think you are not good at your work, it is they who are not able to manage to retain the people they have recruited.
If you are good nothing can stop you from getting good job. All the very best.

See your HR or email to your boss (refer to the conversation about terminating you) to clarify:
a) the termination, get him to confirm in black and white
b) when does he want you to work until
c) final payment of salary including pay in lieu of notice
d) any other payments - earned annual leaves; etc
He can instead of paying you notice in lieu, can ask you to work until the last day. In this case he must issue a letter of termination clearly stating notice of termination and your official last day.
In termination case you are eligible for pay until the very last day of required notice, - regardless of whether the company wants you to work or not.
It is costly to engage a lawyer in Singapore. Depending on your salary and level - lower manager; manager or senior manager and contract with the company, if you find that the contract is not fulfulled, go to the Ministry of Manpower for advise.
They may arrange for a meeting with your company and yourself to look into the legal aspect and ensure all parties abide by the agreed contract. If not then the parties not abiding by the contract can be brought to Labour court.
Hope this helps

Plz cross check the probation clause of your appointment letter if any.
In our company in offer letter we clearly mention the clause
You will be on probation for an initial period of six months w.e.f from ur d.o.j.If necessary your probation may be further extended at the direction of the management. during the period of probation ur services are liable to be terminated without any notice and without any payment in lie of notice and also without assigning any reasons.
So just cross check whether same kind of clause is there in our appointment letter or not?
