Re: Prolonged Illness - Pay Policy

Hi Siew

My company have 1 staff whereby he need to take around 4-6 months to recover from a serious injured due to an accident. In this case, what is the good practice for the company to handle his salary paid out? Do company have the right to treat all his leave after 60 days hospitalization leaves as unpaid leave?

Please advice.

Thank you.


Best regards

I presume it is not a SOCSO case. The company can treat the medical leave after 60 days hospitalization as no pay leave. As for 'good practice' you are talking about, it is up to the company to consider his case on compassionate ground like giving half pay for certain period, advance of salary or even small loan to tide him over especially when he has a family to support. It is up to your company.

It is when the accident happened out of and in the course of his work. Is that employee not contributing to SOCSO?

Hi Siew

No, the staff have contributing to SOCSO. But due to the accident was not happen on the couse of his work, so he can't claim SOCSO.

If he can claims from SOCSO, the company have the right not to pay him?

Thank you

Yes, you are right and SOCSO would take care of that if the accident happened during work.
