Re: pay requirements

I wanted to thank you for all of your responses. You have been a huge help to us as we are attempting to start our business in Malaysia and hit snags in our research. I have a few more questions I am hoping you can help me with.
1. When the pay date falls on a holiday or weekend, when do the funds need to be deposited into the employee's account?
2. What are the requirements for paying unused vacation when an employee leaves the company?
3. Are there any legal requirements for how long we need to retain certain documents?
Any answers you can provide are very appreciated. If you could also point me in the correct direction for where the information is detailed, that would be great as our attorney's like me to give them the actual law to back-up my responses.
