Hi, I'm a 6 months contract worker, working under an agency. On my first day to work, I am already feeling sick and I went to the hospital that same night. I got dengue fever. So, I informed the agent n my working company that I will be hospitalized. I asked the agent whether I'm entitled for hospitalization leave. She said yes. And today, I went to the agency to submit my MC and doctor letter, I was told by the agent that they won't pay me my salary during the time I was hospitalized. Reason was I only went to work for one day. I felt really cheated. Can I lodge a report on them?

You may have to bring the matter up with the Labour Department.
