Updated: Aug 24

A series of explanations of the Amendments to the Employment Act 1955 was previously posted:-

I had also mentioned that in addition to the enactment of the statutory effective date, we were also waiting for the revisions to the First Schedule of the Employment Act of 1955 to be gazetted.


They were both gazetted at the same time today, which means that the Employment Act 1955 will begin to provide its benefits to salaried employees of all classes commencing on September 1, 2022, regardless of the amount of salary they earn or the type of work they engage. These benefits include:

  • 98 days of maternity leave - s 37

  • 60 days' Hospitalisation Leave + Sick Leave as per s 60F(1) [Total 74 - 82 days] - s 60F

  • 45 working hours per week - s 60A

  • 11 gazetted public holidays - s 60D

  • 7 days of paternity leave - s 60FA

  • Lodge complaints to the Labour Office

  • Sexual harassment - s 81B

  • Forced Labour - s 90B

  • Discrimination in Employment - s 69F

  • Limitation on Advances - s 22

  • Flexible Working Arrangement - s 60P

It is important to note that the list above is not exhaustive.


之前曾经把所有1955年劳工法令修订法做了一系列的讲解:

我曾经提到,除了法定生效日的颁布,我们也在等待1955年劳工法令第一附表的修订的颁布。


今天,他们同时被颁布,这意味着2022年9月1日开始,各阶层受薪一族将享有1955年劳工法令的福利,无论薪水多少,又或者是从事什么工作,这包括:

  • 98 天的产假

  • 60天的住院假 + 根据第60F(1)条规定的病假 [总共 74 - 82天]

  • 45 小时1周的工作

  • 11 个宪报颁布的公共假日

  • 7 天的陪产假

  • 到劳工部做出投诉

  • 性骚乱

  • 强迫劳动

  • 就业歧视

  • 薪金预支的限制

要注意的是,上面的列表并不详尽。


However, the First Schedule of the Employment Act of 1955 contains a minor detail that should be brought to your attention. That detail is the fact that certain benefits are unavailable to salaried individuals who earn more than RM4,000 per month.


This is the list of EA provisions which will not apply to employees earning more than RM4,000/month:

  • Subsection 60(3): Overtime for work on rest days.

  • Subsection 60A(3): Overtime for work outside normal working hours.

  • Subsection 60C(2A): Shift work allowance.

  • Subsection 60D(3): Overtime and allowance for work on public holidays.

  • Subsection 60D(4): Holiday falls on a half working day; the ordinary rate or pay payable shall be that of a full working day.

  • Subsection 60J: Termination, lay-off, and retirement benefits.


然而,1955年劳工法令第一附表内还是有一个小小的地方需要注意,那就是有一些福利,月薪4000令吉以上的受薪人士是不享有的。

以下这是1955年劳工法令的条款,不适用于月收入超过4000令吉的雇员:


- 第60(3)条 - 休息日的加班费

- 第60A(3)条 - 正常工作时间以外的加班

- 第60C(2A)条 - 轮班工作津贴

- 第60D(3)条 - 公共假期的加班和津贴

- 第60D(4)条 - 假日落在半个工作天,按一天普通工资支付

- 第60J条 - 终止、解散和退休福利。
