Re: Medical leaves

In labour law how many days of medical leaves for an employee in 1 year? In my appointment letter is stated 6days, but for my company employee hand book is 14 days?

First of all, you should ask the company why the difference.

From my previous employment, for non-confirmed staff, the company will prorate the sick leave eg. if you come in June 09 then the MC entitlement would be 1/2 of 14 days ie 7 days.

In my current employment, if you are not confirmed then you are not entile for MC. I've checked in the employment act but it does not state whether confirmed or not.

Both companies are not doing the right thing. Sick leave are not prorated and employees who are not confirmed are also entitled to paid sick leave.

Yes, should be 14 days under the Employment Act. If your salary is below RM1500, you can complain to the Labour Department.

Then the Labour Department may not be able to help you. Negotiate with your employer.

You did write that employees who are not confirmed are also entitled to paid sick leave, is there any clause in the Labour Law that says so? My company says that staff who are still under probation are not entitled to any. Problem is our probation lasts from 6 to 9 months. Someone is sure to get sick during the long time. Anything I can do about it?

The thing is there is no law to say only confirmed staff are entitled to leave.

But is it ok that the company has such a law whereby staff on probation are not allowed sick leave? In this event, can a staff complain to the labour department?
