Hi KL Siew,

i have read thru the act 60A and the overtime section and i am still confuse on it, i hope you can advice me on the following question

1. if my company appointment letter has clearly stated on the working hours as below.

NORMAL WORKING HOURS; WORK DAYS AND REST DAYS

Normal working hours                : ___48__ hours per week.
Normal rest time                         : ___60__ minutes per day.
Number of work days per week  :  i. Monday to Friday (7.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.).

                                                      ii. Saturday                (7.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.).      

SCENARIO 1,

if employee takes 1st half leave (Annual leave/medical leave/ unpaid leave) and he only shows up to work from 12pm, and he works until 6.30pm. Does he entitled for 2 hours of OT claim? (since the appointment letter clearly stated the working hours)

SCENARIO 2,

NORMAL WORKING HOURS; WORK DAYS AND REST DAYS

Normal working hours                : ___48__ hours per week.
Normal rest time                         : ___60__ minutes per day.
Number of work days per week  :  i. Monday to Friday (8 hours of work).

                                                      ii. Saturday                (8 hours of work).      

if employee takes 1st half leave (Annual leave/medical leave/ unpaid leave) and he only shows up to work from 12pm, and he works until 6.30pm. Does he entitled for OT claim? (since the appointment letter only stated 8 hours of work perday)

To me, I wouldn't be interested in the half day leave. As long as the number of working hours per day is not over 8 or over 48 per week, there will not be and OT.

Thanks Siew. I just speak to the labour officer in subang jaya. After the discussion and the officer seek double confirmation from the superior, and it turns out they stilk ask me to continue to pay for the OT. (Kinda frustrated!...)

In that case, you follow the ruling of the Labour Office. Alternatively, what you can just not to require that staff to work beyond 4.30 after the half day leave, that's all.
