dear admin,

I have serious issues in overcoming lateness @ absent issue in my company. i'm working in HR, we're thinking of imposing the rules of deducting salary to those late coming to work @ absent. most who did this are the senior staff. though i've issued warning letter, still no changes. will i face legal issue if we impose such terms? pleaseee advise me on how can i implement it in a safest way.

HI,

I have a question, if the Offer Letter did not state anything regarding deduction from wage for lateness, can I bring forward the case to Labor Law? Wage is RM900. Can I still forward this case if I am no longer an employee of the company? 

Will greatly appreciate some advice. Thank you!

Kaynoah,

If you have punch card to prove lateness for work, I think you can go ahead. Meanwhile, I still think you should bring the matter (their coming late) to the attention of top management.

I think you can forget about it. I don't think the Labour Department will ask the employer to pay you for coming late.

Dear Admin,Is it rightful to issue warning letter with salary deduction on late coming and absenteeism?

If it is not rightful, the company may not be able to function.
