Re: Computation of Salary
I have an employee taking study leave, commencing on 25/04/2011 (Monday) until 20/05/2011 (Friday). Naturally before going on her study leave, she worked until 22/04/2011 (Friday). Her salary is RM2,500.
So for the month of April 2011 (30 days), her salary was calculated as below:-
(2500/30) x 22 = RM1,833.33
Can I confirm whether the above is correct?
1) She is disputing the calculation because she said her April salary was divided by 30 days (wages scheme) instead of 26 days (monthly scheme). I believe she is using Section 60I (1A) as her point.
I've been reading your Q&A, and been asking around friends in HR (big organisations), they said 26 days are for calculating OT and annual leave, while salary is to be divided by the number of days in a month (i.e. 28 or 30 or 31).
2) She is also asking for us to pay her for the two days, i.e. 23/04/2011 (Saturday) and 24/04/2011 (Sunday). Her argument was that she has worked the whole week from 18/04/2011 to 22/04/2011 (Mon - Fri), therefore she is entitled to the Saturday and Sunday salary.
Sigh, I find that our EA is NOT easy to understand in structure and content.
