“This work promises to fill the vacuum in labour law literature and commentary that has long existed in this country [and] is indispensable to a wide audience. … The information this work contains is sufficient and up to date.”
From the Foreword by Gopal Sri Ram
Most Malaysians' livelihoods are protected by employment, which has now been defined as a fundamental right under the expression of "life." Despite this, while government employees are normally guaranteed tenure, private sector employees are frequently left at the mercy of their employers, with their terms and conditions of employment heavily influenced by them. Employees have gradually gained more protection as the law has evolved and legislative activity has increased.
Employment law is a significant topic of law that affects a wide range of people. A comprehensive guide to the law and practise of employment law in Malaysia, developed by practitioners in this field of law, is urgently needed in light of the developments and development of employment law in Malaysia. The Law and Practice of Employment Law in Malaysia combines the expertise and knowledge of a group of renowned employment law experts. It was written with court lawyers in mind, particularly those who have the difficult responsibility of taking their clients' issues to court, whether they are employees or employers.
The book covers a wide range of topics, including the basics of employment contracts, conducting domestic investigations, various grounds for termination, unfair labour practise, sexual harassment, Industrial Court proceedings, judicial review and appeal, social security, trade unions and their recognition, and industrial action. The conduct of procedures before the Industrial Court, which is the major forum for the resolution of employment issues, is covered in two chapters. Other job-related tasks, such as complaints, inquiries, and offences under the Employment Act of 1955, employee provident fund, employment insurance system, and the hiring of foreign workers, are also covered.
The book's content is useful, instructive, and packed with in-depth analyses of statutory provisions and case law. The Industrial Relations (Amendment) Act 2020's amendments have been thoroughly reviewed. The best practises for avoiding employment law difficulties and dealing with them when they emerge surely add to the book's effectiveness.
Employment lawyers, judges, in-house counsel, human resource practitioners, trade unions, and business owners should all read this book.
