On January 1st, 2023, the Employment (Amendment) Act 2022 goes into effect. With effect from that day, the First Schedule was changed by the Ministry of Human Resources to include all individuals employed under a contract of service rather than just those making up to RM 2,000. This was a genuine quantum leap that benefited the whole workforce of the nation. By limiting eligibility for overtime compensation on rest days and public holidays as well as termination benefits to individuals making up to RM 4,000, the interest of employers was protected. Access to the Labor Court is one of the greatest advantages that all employees, regardless of pay, will experience. Practical examples and pertinent case law have been provided for the entire Act and its Regulations. In order to urge the reader to apply the legislation to real-world issues that typically come up over the course of an HR practitioner's job, questions have also been included. Chapter 11 also contains a succinct overview of the key aspects of the Minimum Retirement Age Act of 2012. This edition's inclusion of more than 60 Questions with responses is another feature.
