Enquires on the Employment Act coverage

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 12:50:59 PM  (Last updated: Thu, 20 Apr 2017 02:37:21 PM)

I am confused with the part stating that employee with over RM$2000 a month will not be covered by the Employment Act. 

Does it mean the employee with RM$2000 or above will have nothing to be protected from? Are there any other rule/ regulations that can ensure their basic benefit? Or it is just depends on the contract he/she signed with the company?

Many thanks

The Employment Act 1955 (EA1955) provides minimum terms and conditions (mostly of monetary value) to certain category of workers.

For further information on EA1955 you may refer to

Terms & Conditions of employment for employees beyond the coverage of EA1955 shall be based on contract of service, Employee Handbook, Collective Agreement, Company's policies to name a few.

Employees with salary up to RM5000 still can file a complaint at Labour Department for terms & conditions that are not fulfilled by the employer.

The Industrial Relations Act 1967 regulates all matters arises between employer & employees of all level (no salary specification).
