Re: OT

My brother just started working, his basic pay is RM1000 per month. On OT matters, my brother has accepted a lower OT rate than the minimum industry (Labour law) rate for Sunday shift and Public Holiday shift. He has signed a side contract with the company.

Is this legal and can my brother challenge the company for the standard industry rate? Can he make a complain to the labour court?

Yes, he can complain to the Labour Department. Ask him to bring along a copy of the contract of service as well as the side contract.

1) For staff whose salary lower than RM1500, are they entitled for OT claim if they are required to work for extra hours?

2) For staffs who are on probation, can company have such policy like, they are not entitle for medical claims, and medical leave through out the probation period?

3) If staffs are required to work on alternate Sat (9-1pm), should the working hours from Mon - Fri be adjusted to 9 - 530pm?
