Hi. I have few things that need to be clarified regarding salary deduction for staff underperforming. Noted that, staff salary below RM2,000.00 is covered by Employement Act.

However, what if company deduct from staff salary due to staff underperforming and amount dedcution has been stated in the Letter of Appointment? Letter has been signed and mutually agreed by both, employer and employees.

I would like to find out if the employer has the right to deduct staff salary? Kindly advise.

Give a call to the Labour Department and discuss the issue with one of the officers there see what he says.
