I m a medical doctor who works for a medical practice based on hourly wage RM40 per hour and daily transport allowance of RM20.

(1). Is it ok for the employer who allows me only hald an hour meal break after each 4 hours of work or one hour break in a 8 hour shift?

(2). If I work as a part timer at an average 24 hours-36hours per week with the same hourly wage as above, am I entiled to any paid gazetted public holidays and annual leave? BTW my boss has allowed me to any reasonable number of non-paid leave.

(3). Should i hask for dbouble wages for working on gazatteed public holidays?

(4). If I work at an average 48 hours per week based on hourly wage as above,

(a). am I entitled to any paid annual leave?

(b).Am I entltled to any paid gazetted public holidays? If yes, how are the wages calculated?

Since your earnings come to more than RM1500 per month, you are not covered by the Employment Act and as such, the benefits mentioned in that Act are not applicable to you. But there is nothing to prevent you from negotiating with your boss concerning those matters mentioned by you.

If you are reluctant to ask for better terms, then yes.
