Re: sick leave

i would like to know that what is the sick leave entitledment for a worker in malaysia and the medical fee shall be pay by the company?
My company was appoint a clinic for his company's staff but the location is nearby the working area but if we didn't go back to the appoint clinic any medical claims fees would not be entertain by my company. They say we have to bear ourselve but if we are already sick and the place we stay was far from that clinic so i go to the clinic which nearby my house and i get the MC and the receipt from the doctor but my boss was not entertain me as well.
so, i hope that i will get the feedback from your side to guide me.
