Hi, would like to find out if a staff newly joined a company, after 1month of working, she said she is pregnant for 5weeks, would like to know about maternity leave if she is entitled for? Thanks!

Too early, pregnancy has to reach 22 weeks before she can qualify for maternity leave with pay.

Hi KL Siew,

May I know if this is stated in labour law - Akta Kerja 1955? Thanks.

Yes, it is stated. Since you know Akta Kerja 1955, go through the Akta, you will find it.
