Re: Engineer OT
I read the 1st Schedule, but not really understand about what is the meaning of Manual Labour. I give a scenario.
For example, If an engineer's salary above RM1500. He always need to go to field to operate & maintain machinery.
1) Refer to the subsection 2(2) of 1st Schedule, does he classify as Manual Labour?
2) Refer to subsection 2(1), if he perform partly manual works and the time used is less then one-half of one wage period, does the Engineer classify as Manual Labour?
3) Same as above example, but he work exceed one-half of one wage period.
And for OT calculation, Manual Labour is using normal OT which is 1.5 for normal, 2.0 on rest day, 3.0 on PH generally. My question is, if he is not Manual Labor, can we choose not to use normal OT rate, but use a fix rate set by the company?
And the last, can company amend the employees' handbook without given employees notice but will given a copy to them after amendment make?
Kindly advice. Thanks
