Hi there,Im new here.i would like to ask about working during malaysia day (16 sept).i have special situation here because i work with MAS newco which falls under MAS Act.The issue is,my company request us to come to work,during public holiday,with no overtime payment.If we want to leave during that public holiday,they will deduct our annual leave.For your info,they pay us inconvenience allowance,and they use that reason to force us to work at any time they want including public holiday and sunday.And my salary is above rm 5000 and i am technical and shift workerMy questions is,is this policy is against the labour law?Your response is much appreciated.Thank you

As your salary is over RM5k, you are probably not covered by the Employment Act. As such, you can seek clarification from your HR department or bring the matter up with your own union.
