Re: EA 1955 vs. Foreign workers

Hello to all Malaysian.

I just want to know if the foreign workers are covered in EA 1955 wherein their salary is below 1.5k. Specifically the claim of over time and public holiday when they will work more than 8 hrs.

Thanks in advance for any reply.

Yes, foreign workers are also covered, just like local workers.

Mr Siew,

I'm an indonesian working in a construction company but the said company didnt follow the act EA 1955 as you mentioned that we convered like the local workers. We cant complaint personally to the labour office becuase we been threatened by the eomplyer that will terminate our permit if we do so! So what we do? is there any email that we can send our complaint? Please advise.

High KUDOS for both of you guys. You have the heart of being a real servant of this nation. Thank you very much for your reply.

For me we can do nothing if our company will not give us the benefits that supposed for us. The only choice we have is to stay or not to stay. We serve them in good faith but still they cheat us and they continually cheating us..

God luck for us.
