Hi, can somebody let me know the labour law for part time. Because i'm a fresh graduate from public university. I'm seeking for job since 8 month. Last month that is on 13.05.2008, i get offer from one printing company. My boss was give me multitasking type of work and i'm really dont know what is my actual position and salary until two weeks. my boss didnt mentioned me anything about my salary, overtime or even ask my photocopy of IC. She only mentioned me that i'm a part time. On the beginning of the month, i ask my boss about the salary and position, but she say she just can give me RM1200 and not now but 13.06.2008. My work start on 9.00 am until 8.30 p.m to 9.30 p.m and sometimes on 11.00 p.m. My boss didnt mentioned about the overtime. My boss give me the salary on 18.06.2008 after few times i sms her that i really need the salary. She didnt give me any offer letter that i working that company. Now, i resign the work because i cant control because she say that i have to finish all the work until late night. Please somebody let me know the part time labour law. And what i should do because my boss didnt give me this month salary plus overtime? Can i take any action?
It looks like you have got a very bad start in your career. Next time, ask for the terms and conditions if you get an offer again. Never mind about the 'part time labour law', go to the Labour Office and make a complaint and see whether they can help you. That's the action you can take.
