Re: Retirement

Good Morning

I am an employer and in the staff contract I did not state the retirement age.

1. Can I issue a letter to all staff and state the company's retirement age now ?
2. I have a staff who is already 58 and I am not happy with her work. Since by default, retirement age is now 58..can I revise her contract and offer her a part time job instead ? My business is also suffering and I am looking to cut down on staff.

Please advise. Tks.

1. By doing that, you are actually depriving them of benefits as stated in the Employment(Termination and Layoff Benefits)Regulations. No employee will even agree, I supposed.

2. I don't think you can do that without a proper termination of service.

As she is 58, can't I issue a policy and decide retirement age is now 60 for my Company ? Or does this mean that I have to keep her in the Company till she can't come to work anymore ?

The other staff is my Comany are no more than 45 yrs old.

She is earning abv RM she covered under the Employment Act?
