Hi!

I verbally agreed to take a job offer but yet into signing the contract yet. The company has a branch in Malaysia but the post will not be based in Malaysia.  According to the company, the contract will be not under Malaysia jurisdiction. Would like to seek your advice: 

(1) Does it mean there is no Malaysia EPF contribution by employee & employer? 

(2) Does it mean, the EPF contribution by employee and employer are to be based on the country that the contract falls under jurisdiction? 

Thanking you in advance!

The company with which you intend to sign is the branch in Malaysia (like xxxx sdn bhd) or with the company in its country of origin?

Hi KL Siew, 

To be frank, I'm still waiting for the contract. The HR verbally told me it would be with the company in its country of origin.  

Thanking you in advance.

In that case, if your contract is with a foreign company and you work in a foreign country then it may subject to the laws of that country.
