If you are covered by the Employment Act, those benefits are automatically your terms and conditions of service. If you are not covered (meaning your salary is over RM1500), you better negotiate properly with the employer and have all the items stated in the contract of service. That will become your legal rights which you can enforce them in court in future should the needs arise.

"Contract of service" and "Contract for service" are not the same. As defined in Section 2 of the Employment Act, a "contract of service" is as below: It is in effect pertaining to contract of employment. We more concerned with "contract of service". "Contract for service" is a contract for providing some services like providing labour, materials and so on. This concerns contractors and not employees. So, the "contractor for service" is not an employee of the company, he himself is in fact an employer.

"contract of service" means any agreement, whether oral or in writing and whether express or implied, whereby one person agrees to employ another as an employee and that the other agrees to serve his employer as his employee and includes an apprenticeship contract;

Why are you concerned about "contract for labour"? Are you a contractor providing workers to the company?

For ordinary people "contract of service" and "contract for service" may be just interchangeable and meaning more or less the same thing. The important thing is the type of work you are doing. It is the nature of work that counts.
