Are you aware of the provisions of the Employment Act 1955 and the implications and effects of the amendments? The Employment Act 1955 is the principal legislation governing employment practice in Malaysia.  Since the majority of employees fall under the ambit of this Act, it is imperative that the employers understand and comply with the obligations mandated by the Act.

The amendments to the employment act 1955 have come into force and employers have been warned several times by the Ministry of Human Resources, through the media, on the consequences of non-compliance with the law.
