Re: Failure to submit punch card

Hi there,
Need your urgent advice. I have a front liner staff (we are in the cosmetic industry). She is a junior makeup artist who is taking a basic salary of RM900 per month. Last month, she is did not turn up at work for a few days and did not inform her superior on her absence. We have given her a show cause letter stating her absence for more than 2 days and failure to report her absence. However, we have yet to pay her last month's salary because she failed to present her report together with her punch card proving she did turn up at work at the counter. When confronted she said her punch card is missing. Her boyfriend called and treathened to take action against us. Please advice.

Even though the punch card is missing, your supervisor may know how many days she was absent. You may calculate her salary based on the supervisor's info. Ask your supervisor.

she works in Jusco (too many staff) and therefore even supervisors of the store cannot confirm her attendance daily. Can the staff raise a case on us not paying her up to now for her February salary?

So never mind, let her take whatever action she wants and you can defend your case later on.

Thanks alot for your advice. She has not been a disciplined staff - fail to turn up at work, fail to report to her immediate superior, and was involved in a case of misconduct with one of the Jusco outlet. We didnt issue proper warning letters to her on those. However, just to ask your advice, if we send a front liner staff 3 warning letters, can she be terminated then?

You have to do something, you just cannot go on giving warnings.
