Re: Maternity Leave

"Maternity leave may commerce anytime within 30 days before her confinement but should not be later than the day immediately following her confinement." Does this mean an expecting employee can choose to begin her maternity earlier than the actual give birth date?

Yes, on doctor's advice. You yourself may not know the due date for confinement.

Even if the employee's salary is above RM1500? Because I found this clause in Akta Kerja 1955.

This is a doctor's advice you know. Employment Act or no Employment Act, the employer may not want to go against doctor's advice.
