Thanks feeb11 for your prompt reply. I did some changes to the draft, is it acceptable or anything else i should add. About tax, I'm not really sure about that. But they also didn't paid for my other fund and I can sue them for that. Actually, they have to pay 23% from my total salary to that fund so I can use it when i retire.

Even though you are angry, it does no harm to thank them for the opportunities to learn that you have had. I would not say "understanding" - they clearly are not.

Also, if this is a serious situation, it would be wise to get professional legal advice, particularly about ensuring you have all the necessary paperwork you might need in order to get a new job.

Thanks for your advice. So, you prefer the first one.
“I wish to thank the company and its staff for all the opportunities provided in my professional and career development during my tenure.”
Btw, I’m not really worried about to getting a new job because I already have it and will be started soon. What is the most important now is to get all my money back.
In your part of the world, is it possible to say that you will bring an action against them if they do not pay you your full back salary?
