Hello,

As far as I understand, there are 5 public holidays a year which are compulsory, National Day, Agong's birthday, Sultan's birthday, Labour Day and Malaysia Day.

Does this mean that companies are free to ignore other public holidays and treat them as normal working days with no extra pay etc?

Also assuming that the affected workers here are not covered by the Employment Act.

Thanks.

I think you should read up Section 60d of the Employment Act for more details about public holidays.
