Re: SUB-COND WAGES

Dear Sir,

I have a quries here, a sole proprieter company employed a staff without an agreement as the staff is under sub-cond wages, no epf, no socso given only a fixed hourly rate being paid to that staff. My problem here is if the employer fire the sub-cond in 24hours, will the employer face any charges?

Thank you.

Without proper agreement, one cannot simply say such worker is a sub-contractor. If that worker is fired, he can complain to the Labour Department and they will decide based on the facts of the case

But through my knowledge most people use the same fact which i had told you. Normally a main cond wil sub their job to sub cond then the sub cond wil hire "that employer" to settle the job then "that employer" will employed a worker for it.

Every month when the employer paid the worker,it stated at the payment voucher that it is under sub-cond wages, so does it consider as a proof that the worker admited that he is on sub cond basis?

If there is no dispute, everything will be alright. But when there is a dispute it is not going to be straight forward as you may think. The Labour Department, EPF or SOCSO will have their own ways of looking into the mattter and decide. Consult them in order to be more sure about it.
