I am a foreigner working for a private company supplying specialist training in Malaysian schools, on a contract that runs for 3 years.

I was served a letter "show cause" why I should not be sacked because I was caught talking with my colleagues about the project, and we were saying som negative things about the employer.

Today the project manager telephoned me and told me I waqs going to be sacked, and to "shut my mouth".

I am on sick leave because of stress in the job, and have to see an expert doctor about that, so I may be on sick leave for a while.

The project manager employed me on a salary, but later reduced the salary, but did not offer any different contract.

My questions are: Can I be sacked whilst I am on sick leave? and because the employer breached the contract by reducing my salary, do I have a right to demand my correct salary bepaid up to the termination, or even can I demand thy contracty be paid out?

Whatever the reasons, if you really got the sack,  complain to either the Labour Department or the Industrial Relations Department. Let them look into the matter.
