Re: Retirement


We have a staff who will attain 55 years old next month. Thus, we will ask him to take a break for 2 weeks' time before commencing the contract of employment (new contract will be commenced in October).

May i know the purpose for asking retired staff to take a break? is it to protect employer from compensating a large amount of money in the event of staff termination?

Appreciate for your kind reply.

Please let me have more info.

1. What is the salary and position of this staff? The purpose of this is to find out whether he is covered by the Employment Act. The EA only covers non manual employees with salary not more than RM1500.

2. Was the 55 years old retirement age stated in his contract of service or appointment letter?

Besides this, if you are the employee concerned or asking on behalf of that employee, you better go to the Labour Department or the Industrial Relations Department to get proper advice.
