Hi there, I am working as retail supervisor with basic pay of $2700. As in my appointment letter that I am assigned to work according to business hours of retail outlets - up to 48hours a week on a 5-day week. Let say my overtime is 10 hours so how do I count my OT. Please advise. Thank you.

Hi, Thanks for ur reply. Btw.I just realized my off day back to work is base on 2000/26/8 and my overtime all is base on 2000/26/8 *1.5. Is that something wrong?? It had been same paid out amount on my off day back to work through out my 2 years services even with 3 times salary adjustment. Pls advise. Thanks again.

26*8=208

2700/26/8=2700/208

You may look for HR for explaination on why Ot rate is based on 2000 instead of 2700(latest salary)

If your HR say Labour law stated OT is those employee earning 2k then you can straight challenge the HR in labour office

another thing to concern, you need to clarify your role : You entitled for OT if you fall below schedule

Employee definition : 

1. Any person, irrespective of his occupation, who has entered into a contract of service with an employer under which such person’s wages do not exceed two thousand ringgit a month.


2. Any person who, irrespective of the amount of wages he earns in a month, has entered into a contract of service with an employer in pursuance of which—


(A) he is engaged in manual labour including such labour as an artisan or apprentice:
Provided that where a person is employed by one employer partly in manual labour and partly in some other capacity such person shall not be deemed to be performing manual labour unless the time during which he is required to perform manual labour in any one wage period exceeds one-half of the total time during which he is required to work in such wage period;


(B) he is engaged in the operation or maintenance of any mechanically propelled vehicle operated for the transport of passengers or goods or for reward or for commercial Purpose

(C) he supervises or oversees other employees engaged in manual labour employed by the same employer in and throughout the performance of their work;

(D) he is engaged in any capacity in any vessel registered in Malaysia and who—
(i) is not an officer certificated under the Merchant Shipping Acts of the United Kingdom as amended from time to time;
(ii) is not the holder of a local certificate as defined in Part VII of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952 [F.M. 70/1952]; or
(iii) has not entered into an agreement under Part III of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952; or


(D) he is engaged as a domestic servant.

If you fall any categories above then you shall entitled for OT.

you may call labour office but you might received standard answer : above 2k they wont able to help.

However you may further inqury them on EA.69B. (1) Notwithstanding the provisions of this Act, the powers of the Director General under paragraph 69(1)(a) shall extend to employees whose wages per month exceed two thousand ringgit but does not exceed five thousand ringgit.

Which mean labour office may accept case for those employee earn not more than 5k
