Hello,

Is it true that if your salary exceeds rm2k per month, even though you are just an executive ( not in managerial position), you will not be entitled for any over time regardless of having to stay back for hours, past your working hour just to finish up the task by the order of the management?

True or not true, just avoid working for this type of companies.

yes, still contemplating. 

But if its not true, can you please give the section of the governing law so i can refer to? Because these ppl here needs a reality check.

How I wish I could do that, but the trouble is, there is no law I could quote to you. You have to protect your own interests and try not to let people exploit you. Sometimes, it is also our work culture whereby employees of more senior positions  working long hours without overtime payment but to explicitly tell you that you are not entitled to overtime pay is bit too hard to take, isn't it? .
