Product description

The key statutory authority governing employment and labour law in Malaysia is the Employment Act 1955. Generally, employees in Malaysia are covered by the Employment Act, which also provides remuneration structure (i.e. wages, costs for housing/ accommodation, travelling allowances, contribution to pension funds, gratuity payable on retirement, annual bonuses, etc.), minimum working hours, rest periods, overtime compensation, and public holidays. Employment Law in Malaysia does not differentiate between the different categories of workers as all employees are protected equally by the law. This publication is designed to offer a clear overview of the legislation that governs the employment law and seek to explain the legal approach adopted by the courts. The publication includes: • Commentaries on defining specific terms within the Act • The commentaries also cross-refer to local and international cases • Relevant local and international legislation • Summary of recent Employment Law cases This publication will serve as an indispensable guide and an essential reference for labour and employment law practitioners, corporate counsel, prosecutors, judges, students, lecturers, as well as researchers..
