Re: require of long working hours even day off
I would like to check with you for the following:
Actually I am a Finance Manager with the basic pay more than RM5K and have to do an accountant job during month end closing. My company is a MNC and basically even during Chinese New Year or other public holidays, I will have to work to do the closing and prepare management reports. I have only 3 working days to do closing and management reports that are really tight and I always have to work overtime to complete everything. Recently, the group management has required us to close the account and complete management reports by 1 and half working days.
My question are :
i) Am I still fall in the Employment Act 1955 with my basic pay?
ii) If my appointment letter mentioned about my working hours (including stated Monday - Friday start work at 9am - 6pm and Saturday off), am I protected under 60A? Employee shall not be required to work for more than nine hours or forty-eight hours in one week?
iii) Do you have any other advise, what can I do to protect my right?
Thanks and looking forward to your reply.
