Hi,

Our company decided to terminate an employee due to restructuring of organization. The affected employee is earning more RM2K a month and is not covered under the employment act. As per mutual agreement, we will pay 6 months termination benefits and the employment will ends in Feb 2018. In this scenario, can the employee bring this case to Industrial Court should he/she feels not satisfied after he/she has signed the and accepted the compensation?

Please advise. Thank you.

Yes, he can if he has a case. He should first bring the matter up with Industrial Relations Department within 60 days from date of termination of service.

Hi Siew,

Thanks for your advise.

May you let me know what is the "case" that you are referring to?

For employees who are not covered under the employment Act, they are subject to the terms and conditions under the service contract or at the discretion of the employer in relation to the amount of compensation.
