Hi there,
My company is offering VSS now and follow by retrenchment later if VSS respond is low. Can you please advise if it is possible that retrenchment happens right after VSS? Is there a certain period of time the company shall wait before they can retrench any staffs?

Thank you & best regards,


My hubby company monthly claims such like Petrol, Toll, parking & etcs is add on to the payslip. For my understanding, the monthly claims should be expenses it out in company book in Profit & Loss? Please advise cause this will effect his personal tax for submission.

Dear Elly,

In response to your encountered matter, there is a standard setting on payroll system whereby the system will only input all neccessary column to be taken into account. For example, the EA form is generated by payroll system and output is well and fine be differentiated. I think the matter on displaying staff claims into staff payslip is not an issue. Importantly, these claims are not defined in EA or other benefit-in-kind documents submission.

However, the payroll system should be pre-set into this order.

Do you agree?


I have been working in this company for more than 15 years. I am holding a high position in this company. The problem i am facing now is that the company is asking me to leave voluntarily .I am supposed to be incharged of the sales department. Due to the economic situation and tecnology revolution, the company sales has reduced tremendously.
My question is how does my company need to compensate me according to labours laws? What retrenchment benefits am i entittle to? Recently, i have also agreed to a paycut. Is there any other measures i can take to keep my job?
Please advise. Thank you.

I have tendered my resignation by giving 1 month notice and also 1 month salary in lieu. My notices should be 2 month notices but I opt to leave early becoz’ of my final exam.

My employment letter stated notices can be given by either party.

My issue now is that my employer is not willing to accept my resignation letter dated 07/02/09. Till now I haven’t receive any confirmation from my employer yet and this worry me.

Can u advise me what shd I do? Can I leave the company even though without the acceptance of resignation letter from my employer? URGENT…HELP REQUIRED!

Hi, I was being offered a job with a basic of RM1500 on 16th Feb 2009 commencing on 2nd Mar 2009. I had reported to work on 2nd Mar 2009 and the HR Dept of the Company had given the Appointment Letter without being signed by the boss. Without proper training, the boss had directed me to sell 10 units of the machine in one day. I have not get any sales. He asked me to leave the company now and he wont be paying a single cent for what I worked. What should I do?

i was worked one day time of waitress and then i discover that i can’t adapt to the environment. In the other day i was ASAP to told the manager that i need to resign and the reason. When the time i was interview i had paid RM60 for uniform during the time the HR told me that notice of resign need to 14day is for haven’t be confirmation, if after confirmation period need one month notice. So i’m unconfirmation staff. I know that i need to give 14 days notice, if not i can’t get single cent of what i was work. I don’t care it. But
In second day i was return back the uniform for the HR, But she never return back the money for me “uniform money”. I never asked my salary of one day work, i understood that it’s imppossible. But is’t she need to return the uniform money for me?
Is’t i can get back my RM60 uniform money?
Notice of resign and uniform is separate right? Notice is notice, uniform is uniform? is’t separate?I’m Confuse… The HR so toplofty and threat that she can sue me! If i know i can’t get back uniform money how come i still return back to the office for her.
Can i get back my RM60?
What shold i do?

Thank you


You should served your notice till 14days, or pay back the company 14days salary as your resignation notice. The only, you have rights to claim back what ever your uniform deposit.

Pls be understant that you are one who accept the offer ever you knew all the terms and conditions.

As what you explain, i did’t see any problem with the company. So, you should not break the terms that you had agreed but to comply with it….

If after resign then boss not pay out salary for me, always not answer my call. what should i do?

Good Day,
I am just a rank & file staff. I have tendered my resignation from a company by giving 1 month notice. Last day working 12 July 09. I still have 51 hours to claim. According to HR we are only allowed to claim hours & not paying the overtime. They also said that they assume I work till the 18 July as they will pay 6 days work (48 hours) & 3 hours overtime claim. Firstly, to my understanding, rank & file staff overtime are to be paid accordingly & not by claiming the hours. Secondly, till today I am still not paid. HR of the company told me that my outstanding salary will be paid on the 1 August09. According to the employment act, the outstanding days of work should be paid on the last day I work that is the 18 July. Kindly seek for your soonest reply as I am just a rank & file staff. Not earning a lot money. Thank you.

Hi, I worked as property negotiator for my former employer( agency) as full commission base. I have resigned but my ex-employer refuse to pay my balance commissions which i did closed the sales and some deposits which hold by him also. He refused to answer my calls …not reply at all and he refused to meet and do nothing and seen like no intention to settle my balance commissions since one month i have resigned. Somemore he has a un fair clause that i have to give three month notice for resignation but cannot work for company at all in this three month …Is it fair??? and how come he can put this kind of clause in the employment letter and i m no taking any basic salary ….it’s pure commission base. Should i ignore it or complaint to labour office??? need help. What can i do??Pls advise.

if i go to complaint about my company to let lately go to break what action will be done by labour office. because as i know the labour law got show out the working hour cannot longer that 5 hours if later that that must be atleast half an hour break time so i go to labour office to complaint then the labour office got take any action from that.

I called to the HQ to get some related information but already call for 5 time on 14/01/2010 2pm-3pm does’t have anyone answer the call . Very disappointed on it .

Recently my company hired a new Manager to my department. Now the new manager wants all in the department to pay RM25 every month regardless is we agree to it or not. He also said those who don’t pay does not belong to the department. This is not part of the company policy but rather his own policy. Is he allowed to do that? Is this legal?

Hi all,

I have few questions as below:

1. How should I compute salary for confirmed staff with monthly rate?

e.g. Jan’10 (31 days) , Rest day (Every Sunday, 5 rest days in Jan’10)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 26 days X (No. of days worked)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 31 days X (No. of days worked & day off)
Feb’10 (28 days) , Rest day (Every Sunday, 4 rest days in Feb’10)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 24 days X (No. of days worked)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 28 days X (No. of days worked & day off)

2. How should I compute the salary for staff who under probationary period with monthly rate, if they work commenced in the middle of the month?

e.g. Jan’10 (31 days) , Rest day (Every Sunday, 5 rest days in Jan’10)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 26 days X (No. of days worked)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 31 days X (No. of days worked & day off)

3. How should I compute the salary for staff if the date of the salary cut off is from 26th – 25th every month?

e.g. Mar’10 (31 days) & Apr’10 (30 days)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 26 days X (No. of days worked)
monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 31 days X (No. of days worked & day off) + monthly rate of pay /(divided by) 30 days X (No. of days worked & day off)

4. Is unpaid leave compute with reference to the number of days in a month or by the working days?

5. How should I compute sick leave for confirmed staff and staff under probationary period?

6. How should I compute annual leave compensation? (divided by No. of days in calendar month OR working days in a month)

7. How should I compute over-time?

8. Is the salary for staff who is under probationary period subjected to EPF & Socso contribution?

I appreciate the time you took to clarify my doubt. Your assistance has been invaluable to me.

Thank you.

Greetings, i was attached to a premium company for a year. I was not paid my last salary. Before this, i was paid Rm. 1300. And commission paid at 2% regardless how much the company marks up the price. Claims are only for tol and patrol. Phone calls was paid for which carrier half of my pay every month. I was promised 3 months doing administration and than to sales. But since i’ve been doing both. The company was supposed to pay up my epf BUT it didn’t happen. This had affected me on applying loan. As i resigned, things had been really hard for me. I’ve asked my employer but there was no response. I’m very much disturbed as i need to move on. Furthermore, i’m the only staff yet i wasn’t being appreciated. I was also having an uncomfortable environment while working. It seems so much like home. I am not asking much, i wanted the salary to move on. Please advise what action should i take. Thank you

Can an employee requests for Mutual Separation Scheme (MSS) on special ground that immediate family member (parents, husband, child) is sick (critical illness, major operation, under treatment); such application to be substianted by doctor’s written confirmation?.

If employer refuses to accept such request, can an employee requests for unpaid leave until she/he ready to work again, if yes, how long would be the duration of such leave?.

During unpaid leave period, can an employee enjoy medical benefit or other benefits as applicable in line with Employment Offer Letter?

Can a bank impose new regulation to staff by issuing a distressed warning letter that the staff has under-performed without proper training to improve her skill, thereafter, the staff will be under department head’s counselling before dismiss order without compensation?.
Can Labour Office over-rule all employers to issue VSS to staff who they feel not performing according to their new standard of work, otherwise to make it a condition to send them for series of external (not internal!) training in the related field to improve them?.

Hari dah 07/09/10, syarikat kita masih belum mengumumkan keputusan cuti.

I urgently require some advise on the predicament I’m in. I am in the advertising industry. I have been working with this company since December 15th 2009 & I have been given an appointment letter dated 30th Nov 2009. In my appointment letter, it states that there will be a probation period of 3 months and I will receive in writing, my confirmation letter of employment as a full time staff.
Question that I have are as per:
1. It has now been 9 months and I have yet to receive my confirmation letter. Is my appointment letter still binding?
2. I have not received my August salary.
3. I have yet to receive any claims ( as stated in my appointment letter)for client entertainment/or other expenses (petrol/parking/toll/F&B).
4. I have yet to receive any job incentive (2% from total job invoiced)for jobs that I have brought in to the company (at least 3 jobs)and at least one has been fully paid by the client.
It is also stated that I was to be given an additional incentive which I have yet to receive for every job that I handled.
Though it is also stated that the 2% is based on job margin/profitability of 24% is obtained after all job expenses & cost are included & I may have to split the incentive with my co-Producer & final share out is at management’s approval.
5. Upon sending in my resignation letter, should I give 24hr or 2weeks notice as stated in my appointment letter?

Urgently require advise!

Thank You.

I m suffering from migrain very offen due to rushing working environment. FIY, i m working in banking hall . Because of the suffering and work needs, i normally will taking medical leave for rest. This is because of my body poor condition during migraine attack and i would not be able to concentrate on my job as a single negligence on my daily job will cause loss which employee need to pay on their own pocket money.This has increase my medical leave record.

Today, i had my stomach problem and consult to a same clinic that i normally visit. The doctor has informed me that they wont be able to give me a day off even though i am granted for it cos they got warning letter from my management “not ot issue any MC to our staff if not we have to withdraw your clinic as a panel.”
As i have already consult the doctor and has prove that i have my medical problem, the patient shouldn’t be rejected to have a day off if he or she is granted for it if the patient is in a genuine case. Because of the treatening from the company , the doctor will have to keep their own judgement on a patient. This has prove that either the doctor or the company has serious problem in theis professional duties.
Kindly advise on the above matter.

To who it may concern,

Hi, I would like to clarify if I started joint the company on 01 June 2010 and till now yet receiving any confirmation letter/letter offer. My queastion is ~ If i wanna tender my resignation now, do i still need to give 1 mth notice?

Await for your early reply, thks!


on 6th mth, you should ask your company why not confirming you. If they are not satisfied with your performance, the u should resigned early and not to wait. If they told you that they forget, then you can tell them that is your company problem and mistake. So it is not a problem for me to go off under non-confirm notice.

A very good afternoon to you.

The Manager, Saya ingin tanya tentang pekerjaan saya sama satu office selama 15 belas tahun tetapi dalam masa itu saya ada berhenti salama 5 bulan pada tahun 2002. selepas itu saya bekerja lagi sampai 30-12-2010. Pada hari 30-12-2010, manager saya beritahu saya dia akan berhenti saya pada hari itu tetapi dia akan bayar saya gagi sampai Jan 2011 kerana office mungkin akan tutup pada masa depan. Di sini saya ingin tahu ialah dalam labour law dia bayar saya satu bulan gagi betulkah ?

my boss terminated i with 1 day notis and give me 1 month salary for compensate. is it correct according to the labour law ? i am working with her already 8.5 years. thkz


firstly we must know the reason of termination. If you did done anything wrong, and your boss willing to pay you off, the nothing is wrong with th company.

If you did do anythng wrong, then why you accept the termination???

If one of my colleague been work in to my office and said that he is not satisfy with the decision I made and he will hit me with steel if I did not cancel the decision.
Can this consider as threaten? and can I made a report to police or any suggestion that I can do?

I’ve tender my resignation giving 4 weeks notice as stipulated on the employment letter after 1 month working. Employment letter stated I subject to 14 days annual leave. Question is am I entitled to purata annual leave by right even not confirmation? As the employment letter is silence about this, can I insist on payment by the company of unclaimed annual leave of 2.5 days?


you should report this to your immediate superior and bring it up to your boss. If internally, the not helping you to settle the problem, the you should go for police report.

Hi there
Just want to check if the employer wants to terminate one of the employee whereby his working attitute is bad and not responsible, etc, and he is working in the company for about ten years already and the company had been giving him many warning letters but no improvement at all.

Please advise.

I was unwell one month and was admitted for major surgery. As a result i close my office and the workers were on leave or off. Do i have to pay full salary or half salary. I do not have any income for that month. What is ur view

I been working for this company almost 2 years. Last year i applied leave for christmas. In this company i am not entitle for OT, so when i worked extra hours or during public holiday, they will compensate it with replacement leave, in which i am entitled. Last year the receptionist told me that i am entitle for 21 day confirm from her calculation through the system, and it is finalized, so i did applied for 21 day’s replacement leave and when i was back to work on Jan 2012, they inform me, there was a mistake and the company forcefully deduct my pay as unpaid leave. As far i know the mistake came from HR Dept, and they insist me to sign unpaid leave form for their mistake. Can a employer deduct my salary due to their mistake ? Why deduct from my salary due to other people mistake ?

can he made a half day pay cut from your salary???

I am an executive staff, of former EON Bank Berhad now merged with Hong Leong Bank Bhd. Today, I attended a briefing in KL Head Quarters and was informed that our benefits stated in TACOS, EON Bank Bhd Executives Benefits Agreement has been changed (harmonised) with Hong Leong Bank Bhd Executives Benefits. And most of our benefits have been removed effective 1st June 2012. Staff of EON Bank was informed at the point of merger with Hong Leong Bank that our staff wellfare are being taken care off and there won’t be any change in our benefits for 3 years after merger. But this was not the case.
With rising cost and removal of this benefits will burden the staff. Hong Leong Bank recently declared in the newspaper that they had increased their profit by 61% on year to year. However, they are removing many staff benefits.

May I know, as an employee what are our remedy to our employer actions (exploitations)?

Please advice constructively. What legal actions can we employ? How do we protect our rights?

Thank you.

hi… saya pengurus sebuah syarikat trading berapa harikah cuti public untuk satu tahun bagi pekerja dan cuti -cuti apakah yg perlu saya beri untuk satu tahun


I’m sharing this with you hoping I’ll get some sort of guidance and assistance. I’m an expatriate employed with an IT private limited company, first year was though not very exciting, it was somewhat OK to cope up with. The real pain started from the second year onwards.

First, I was jaw-struck after coming to know that my medical insurance plan provided by my employer is a very weak policy and it hardly helps as a basic requirement. Especially during outpatient treatment at the hospitals, the insurance company always says ‘you pay first we reimburse later’ but when we actually claim, a cheque of only 100 MYR is paid back. There are instances where it has crossed 800 MYR, rest of the amount is always a burden from our own pocket despite having an insurance coverage. The company never agrees to pay the rest either.

Secondly, while exercising annual appraisal, they easily break all labor acts acting as if ‘whose father’s what goes?’ meaning they’re negotiating/reducing our Medical and Annual leaves! Earlier in the first year also it was not on par with the labor law and now after appraisal they’ve reduced it to 5 each. If we were to put our foot down, they manipulate with our salary figures. And this is especially happening with expatriate employees. Isn’t some labor authority bridling these IT SMEs spread like mushrooms? They really make our lives miserable playing dirty tricks to mint money at all possible windows.

I would be much obliged if you could kindly advice me on further legal moves. Thank you.

Warm reagards,

I tendered my resignation letter today after working for 2 months in the company. Based on my employment letter signed before, I need to give at least 2 weeks notice period which under probation period of 6 months. In my resignation letter tendered, I stated will work until 30th June 2012. But now my boss ask me to quit by today forget about the 2 weeks period stated in employment letter. Now, my question is that do I have a right to ask for compensation of the 2 weeks salary since he ask me to leave the company by end of the day today 08 June 2012 if I not agree to do so. Please advise me. Thank you very much.

I have joint a private firm since 1 June 2009. The probation period is 6 months which means to be confirmed on 1 January 2010. I was only confirmed on January 2011. There was no documentation for the extension period nor any verbal advice.

On the other hand, a letter dated 19 January 2011 signed by the company CEO says that my salary has been revised from $xxxx to $xxxx amount. The differences of salary from January 2010 will be credited into January 2011.

The company now disputes to credit the arrears of salary from January 2010 to December 2011 = 12months.

I understand that any employee will be automatically become a permanent staff of the said company with continuous 1 year service from the date of join without any notice given.

Can I pursue with a legal action against the company and stand for my rights for the back dated payment?

Please advise. Thank you.

Hi, I would like the find out more regarding the extention for the retirement age to 60 yrs, it is apply to Female also ? Cos my company HR manager say it is only apply to male stuff. What can i do ? Pls advice ..thx

I have once worked for a company for 3 days and resigned because of the environment. I have sent and official email to HR and my direct superior. The offer letter i signed stated 1 month notice required if under probationary period, and yet i didn’t aware! (how careless i was) After a week i resigned, HR called me and want me to pay 1 month salary due to the short notice (and term it as absconded) or else they will sue me. I proposed to them to serve the 1 month notice immediately and the HR said will ask my direct superior whether want me back to serve the 1 month notice or not. If they do not want me back to serve, then i need to pay the 1 month salary or get sued. Since i have already offered them i will come back to serve immediately, can they reject and want me to pay the 1 month salary?! the HR manager said this is an absconded case and i cannot serve the ‘unserved’ 1 month notice already…. this is kinda confusing…

To whom it may concern,

I have sign the letter of appointment to company A but after that I write in and call in to the hr and the boss said that I turn down the offer due to some personal reasons.
The hr and boss said I must pay the compensation of 6 months salaries if not it will bring to court case.

The reason is after I signed the offer letter she not allowed me to bring back a copy to keep. I remembered in the offer letter just stated termination notice is 2 months or 6 months salaries compensate. It did not stated that under or not under probation period. After call in and write in the reject offer, I went to that company A to meet the hr again. I want to have a look and photocopy a copy to see. But she refuse my request, just told me I should pay the compensation of 6 months salaries in 7 days. I have no choice then go back.

I haven’t even start work at that company. Should I bother it?

Thank you.

To whom it may concern,
Just need to clarified the standard calculation on salary. i went for my exam n i was unpaid for 18days.
Basic salary= 2200
Company’s calculation= 2200/30(include the saturday n sunday that we are not working)=73.34 per day
but they pay me on the days on that i working only(monday to friday) without including the saturday n sunday.
6days working x 73.34= 440.
When i question my management the told me that it is the law where we need divide the salary with total day in a month n just paid for the working days only. Please advice.

i would like to know abt the retrenchment . i worked for more than 2 years and now suddenly my company gonna retrench me. i would like to know what can i do, will i be given compensate.

our company plan to hire a part time driver, a retire man, and pay him by working hours. after we saw the government post the minimum wages, we have a question is ‘should we pay the part time worker minimum wages divided by hours(8hours/day)? or should we pay him by our own part time working hours’ price?

My monthly Salary is more than 2,500, sometime i am late few minutes when report to work. Our company have set the policy that every first 1-10 minutes late will be deduct 1 hrs from salary, is it company can deduct the employees’ salary and no need to refund back even the employee is resign one day ?
