I just recently know that worker covered under the employment act in now 2000.00 and below (previously 1500.00 only)
Right now my basic is RM 1900.00 and get "responsibilty" allowance RM 300.00
My question is am I covered under the employment act?
Under para 3 of the First Schedule of the EA, it says :
"3. For the purpose of this Schedule “wages” means wages as defined in section 2, but shall not include any payment by way of commission, subsistence allowance and overtime payment. "
There its says "subsistence allowance", is your "responsibility allowance" a subsistence allowance? You may have to get confirmation from the Labour Department.
