1. Due to company closure, one of my friends working for more than 5 years the VSS money is calculated 3 months wages for every year & some is 20days wages for every year.
Please let me know why is there 2 types of calculation and advise which is correct one.
2. Please also advise whether the wages of a staff more than RM1,500 will the labour office help out if any workers face difficulty on receiving VSS due to company closure or do we need to go to Industrial court directly.
Normally VSS is a scheme worked out by the company for the workers to accept so that they can leave the company voluntarily. Those employees who find it attractive, may accept and leave while others may not want to accept. Consult the Labour Department and for those with salary over 1.5K may consult the Industrial Relations Department.
