Re: Replacement leave or O/T

Our Company used to provide replacement annual leave for staffs (executive and non-excutive level) for attending day Seminar/ Training (9.00am -530pm) on non-work day i.e. Saturday or Sunday organized by our HR. Our company observed 5 day work week. As of April 2009, this replacement leave was stopped, no O/T etc . Coming August , there will be two Saturdays for such Seminar and no replacement leave or whatsoever. Our HR department informed in her email it is compulsory and unless there is a valid reason ,subject to ok, one no to attend.

Question 1 is , what rights do we have considering this is non-work day and is our break , and can Management imposed that it is compulsory?HR preferred to organize Seminar/ Training on weekend (non work day !)

Question 2 is, need Company to provide compensation eg. O/T if not replacement annual leave on non-work day eg. Saturday or Sunday for include of attending seminar.

Will appreciate for advice and feedback.

Thank you

Your company seems to have deviated from their previous practice. I think all of you can make a issue of it and make representation to them. If no amicable settlement whatsoever could be reached, you may have to enlist the help of the Industrial Relations Department. Talk to the company first.
