Re: Emergency Leave

I would like to know more regards the labour low for this emergency leave, for what I meant emergency leave is come from urgently and unexperted, but our company work out a labour policy and limited our emergency leave for 3 day per calendar year and if we violation of this policy they may suspension for one (1) to five (5) working day without pay to termination. It is a reasonable for a worker ?

Looking forward a early reply

There is no definition for Emergency Leave in the Employment Act.
It is up to individual companies policy.
In my opinion, 3 days per year is a little tough but I'm sure if you have proof of a serious unavoidable emergency, your employer would be willing to consider.

On the same subject Mr Siew, is suspension without pay according to law? If so for how long?

You are quite right about emergency leave.

For suspension, read Section 14 of the Employment Act.

my company today 'set up' a new rule as below:
Employees who wish to take emergency leave will be considered as unpaid leave. The management will treat Emergency Leave as Unpaid Leave and will deduct 3 working says salary for the month.

Is that humane?
