The general working population recognises the value of job security in the form of continued employment in an organisation until retirement age. Unfortunately, job loss is an unavoidable and painful result of a corporate restructuring or reorganisation process justified by economic and business needs. Downsizing occurs when a company no longer requires the same number of employees as before because the employee's functions have ceased or been significantly reduced.
For example, the current Covid pandemic has put a lot of pressure on businesses, with government-imposed lockdowns and movement controls all over the world making it impossible to win new business or continue with existing initiatives. However, it is critical that the termination of an employment contract due to redundancy be based on acceptable grounds that are genuine and free of any unfair labour practises.
This revised volume includes full treatment of current and major developments in Malaysian retrenchment law and practise.
This title provides a complete discussion of
- the concepts and factors that contribute to redundancy;
- layoffs and retrenchment

- instances in which a retrenched worker may be entitled to compensation;

- proposal for the establishment of a retrenchment fund and its operating structure;
- Retrenchment from the standpoint of Islamic law, as well as the use of Zakat money to aid unemployed Muslims until they find new work.
This book, written by authors with extensive experience in employment law, frequently refers to legislative sources and court decisions to illustrate how the law and practise of retrenchment function. This book will undoubtedly give employers, employees, and their legal counsel with much-needed information.
