Re: Meal allowance

hi,

i work in a retail environment
my company is currently paying meal allowance of RM100 each month...
my working hours is in shift. a balance of 3 days (10am - 6pm) and 3 days (2pm - 10pm)

recently my company implemented that all morning shift staff to come in 20mins earlier to do house keeping. meaning reporting to work at 9.40am and still finish work at 6pm...

we confronted HR saying its not fair as we are losing on the OT claims for the 20mins. HR say we are not entitle for the OT claim for that 20mins cause we are given a "meal allowance" and that cover this kind of of expenses/claim...

my ques are:
1. is my HR comment correct...??
2. can other expenses/claima be put under meal allowance...???

cheers

That's something you have to sort out with your HR.

I really cannot tell you any law to say whether it can or cannot. Consult the Labour Department for their opinion if necessary. Try to claim OT, if they don't want to pay, don't work OT.
