Re: Salary being reduced without reason

Since Year 2005 Aug 2006, Im employed by COMPANY A with the pay of RM2,700.00 (Salary RM2,000.00 + Fixed Allowance RM700.00).
During end of Aug 2006, COMPANY A claimed that company is not doing well and transferred me to COMPANY B under the same job duties, term & condition except with the daily wages of RM104.00 (with no Allowance & EPF Contribution) and 2 months later increase to RM106.00 (with no Allowance & EPF Contribution).
By End of December 2007, COMPANY B transferred me back to COMPANY A for the same reason being COMPANY B is not doing well.
However, I noticed that my January 2008 pay (from COMPANY A) is being reduced from RM2,700.00 to RM2,200.00.
There is a total of RM500.00 decrease in my pay.
I raise up my query and they just don't bother to give me a satisfy reason, and yet say i will not be able to sue them as well.
Pls help, as the RM500.00 pay reduce is really caused a big burden in my expenses. What's the right action should i go for to claim back the amount? i would be very much appreaciate if you could send the reply to my email as well. Pls advise. Thanks

For the period you were paid daily salary but no EPF, you have a case to complain to the EPF about the non-contribution.

For the reduction of your salary in the beginning of 2008, I would advise you to consult the Labour Department see if there is anything they can do to help you.

I also think it is time for you to look for another job, no point working like that. Don't you think so?

Ya, i've been called to labour office and they told me salary above 1500 they asked me to refer to Pejabat Perhubungan Perusahaan. And the Officer asked me to write a letter to COMPANY A and ask for explaination. But till now they stil not give me any explaination. Of course this company cant be staying any longer, but before i leave i wish to get back my entitle salary, this company is so cunning. That's why i need your professional advise. If i have no way to sue them, then do i have any way to publish this matter?

Your salary is not over RM5000, as such the Labour Office still has the power to help you as under Section 69B of the Employment Act, which says:

69B. Additional powers of Director-General to inquire into complaints.

(1) Notwithstanding the provision of this Act, the powers of the Director-General under section 69(1)(a) shall extend to employees whose wages per month exceed 1,500.00 ringgit but does not exceed 5000.00 ringgit.

Try the Labour Office again before you go the Industrial Relations Dept. Go to the Labour Office personally, don't use telephone call.

You better get a new job first before you tender your resignation. Don't tender your resignation without a job waiting for you.
