Hi, Good day!

I am drafting my employment contract for my new worker. My worker is a technician with salary of above RM2,000.00. To protect company and give the worker a clear picture of company's policy, I will insert two clauses in employment letter :

 i) Management has right to terminate employee if he absent from his work consecutive 3 working days / exceed 5 days in one month without seek approval from management / inform management

May I know is clause above breach the Employment Act as the worker is doing manual job (He is technician of servicing, installation of aircond)?

Hope you can give advice regarding issue above.

Thanks in advance.

There is nothing to prevent from putting in clause but you still have to go through proper procedures if you want to terminate his service for that.  You just cannot terminate his service summarily because of that clause.
