" Hi All,
Please take note that effective from July 2017 all employees are compulsory to contribute RM20.00 monthly to become a member of company social & recreation club.
The social & recreation committee with the aim of creating a platform for all staffs to engage in recreation activities and also to encourage team spirit and interaction among colleagues."

would like to know , is that such thing as compulsory to contribute ?  Most of the employee do not agree and do not sign for any form.

Kindly advise on it.

Thank you

  Since, as you said, most employees did not agree and did not sign the form, then we would wait and see whether their salary is going to be deducted nonetheless. If that happened, the deductions could be unlawful under Section 24 of the Employment Act. and the employees affected could bring the matter up with the Labour Department.
