Re: Absence from work
Would like to enquiry that, if a staff absence from work for 2 consecutive days and failing to inform or attempt to inform the company of the reason, could we terminate her service with the company with immediate effect?
As there's a clause stated on appointment letter saying that : -
"Your service with the company may be terminated at the discretion of the Company if you fail to report for duty for two consecutive working days without any valid reason of notice."
However, refer to the act, it is "MORE THAN 2 consecutive working days".
Therefore, can we refer to the clause stated in appointment letter? FYI, the staff is cover under Employment Act.
Appreciate for your kind advice.
