Can anybody help me and let me know whether dental medical cert is not recognise by company? Is it company can choose to not recognise for the dental medical cert and only recognise for the company panel medical cert? My HR told me like that and i need to take annual leave instead of MC.
Let's check with your HR whether there is such clause on your employee handbook and/or appointment letter. If not, do alert them of the Employment Act 1955 Section 60F(1A) where the refusal of giving paid dental sick leave is regarded as an offence.
Do alert your HR that the entitlement for paid dental sick leave and the entitlement for dental medical claim are regarded as separate issues. You might be entitled for paid dental sick leave while not entitled for dental medical claim.
You can file a complaint at labour Dept, and seek their help. Furnish them the relevant documents including the e-mails between you and HR pertaining to this matter. Take this action only as the last resort.
