Yes, you should give them a contract of service. They are entitled to all the benefits under the Employment Act such as sick leave, annual leave, holidays and so on.

Thanks for your information!

Can i know how should i record their annual leave or sick leave since they are daily paid now? (meaning to say company calculate their salary depend on how many days they work in a month)

If this daily paid general workers going to resign or company going to terminated them, how many days notice or pay should be given ?

In your leave records, you just record when the annual leave or sick leave was taken. In your salary record, there should be a column for annual leave or sick leave pay. The leave pay is his or her daily pay. For example, if his daily pay is RM40, then his leave pay is RM40, very simple.

If notice period is not stated anywhere in the appointment letter, then you should follow Section 12 of the Employment Act. Read up Section 12.
