It should be 13 days (one day is public holiday -1/1/09 new year). So actually did any Malaysia law stateted even we join after the public holiday but the company still have to pay us? Edit | Delete

 KL Siew kl_siew@yahoo.com 25/03/2009 16:14:20 Why not ask them to calculate it the other way 2000/26 x 19 =1461.54? (13/1 to 31/1)= 19 daysActually, the correct calculation should be (2000/31) x 19 = 1225.81 Edit | Delete

 Ess eziworldtravel@gmail.com 30/03/2009 13:47:00 If the months have 30 days or example feb only have 28/29 days .... so the calculation for basic salary will still be 31 days or follow the days on the particular month. Edit | Delete

 tylin 30/03/2009 17:22:04 The correct calculation should be follow the number of day on the particular month. Edit | Delete

 ezyman 31/03/2009 15:16:50 my calculation is 19/31*2000=1225.81this is as at labour law. Edit | Delete
