Re: staff under probation

three of my staff (only working 1 mths+) absent for a few days without informing us and appeared 5 days later telling us they resign immediately and request cash immediately. i told them to come back few days later but now they said they want to complaint this to the labour office.

also they complaint on the pay was calculated in 31 days instead of 26 days. i told them because they absent for so many days especially saturday so they do not entitled paid sunday. Correct? pls advise.

If they resigned immediately without giving any notice, you can in fact withhold payment of any of their salary to use it for indemnity in lieu of notice. Let them complain to the Labour Department and you can have the matter sorted out there.

thank you so much for your advices. dont mind if i ask:-

1) i thought they are new staff ( 1 mths +) so the notification period is only 24 hrs. can i still hold their salary for indemnity in lieu of notice?

2) for those new worker who work not even 1 month ( 24 days), and straigh away absence for a few days, do they entitled EPF Contribution?

1. If you don't mind their giving 24 hours notice, then you will have to pay their salary for all the days including rest days but minus the days of absence. If it was January, the calculation will be (salary/31) x number of days.

2. By law you have to as long as there is salary earned. Personally, I won't bother. Consult EPF to make sure.
