Re: Overtime

Good day, my company's fomulary for overtime:
(Monthly Basis salary + Allowance)/(26*8)=RM/hr
If my monthly salary + allowance is over RM2000, how can I claim it?

For my situation now, my company use the maximum RM1500/(26*8) to count it, is it acceptable? Is it company can count by maximum RM1500 only?

For example, if
(i)my salary is RM2000, so my overtime=RM2000/(26*8), this is follow the employment act.
(ii)my salaty is RM2000, the count by overtime=RM1500(max)/(26*8)

To me, your company is doing the right thing. There are also unionised companies using RM1500 as a ceiling for overtime calculation for those with salary over RM1500. This is a sort of compromise so that both parties will not have to lose too much. On the other hand, there are also lots of companies that refuse to pay overtime at all to those with salary over RM1500. The Employment Act is no longer applicable to you as it only covers non manual employees with salary not more than RM1500.

Oh thank you.
But for me i think it is unfair to those with salary over RM1500 loh, especially request us come back working on rest day and public holiday, right? Maybe it is fair for our normal working day only.

If my monthly basis is RM2000, mean RM77/day, so if using RM1500, then ask me come back to work at rest day, is it about RM58 only. If on Public Holiday also RM116 only. So if im accept come back to work mean im very stupid loh.

This is unfair world.

That's something for you to decide.

1)在休息日(SUNDAY)回公司加班, 加班費如何計算?
2)如果是在公共假期, 加班費又如何計算?如果加班超過八小時,又如何計算?
