Re: Employer request to pay penalty
I'm asking on behalf of my husband.
He is working in Maid Agency, yesterday his boss passed him 5 Myanmar workers passport & he kept them inside his bag & the bag was in his boss's car. Then the theft has stolen his bag from the boss's car when they parked the car somewhere in PJ.
Now the boss request him to pay the penalty of replacing a new passport. Each passport cost RM1200 from Myanmar Embassy. Total will be RM6000.
His salary is less than RM1500.
I would like to know is there any Employee Act that mentioned regarding genuine losses like this? As it is not cause by him misplace the passport but is cause by theft.
Hope to hear from you soon.
