Re: incomplete month wages computation

We employ a staff for a monthly salary of RM5,000.
He resigned and last day is fall during the month, i.e. on 3/7/11.

Usually our company will pay him according to working days computation basis i.e. 1/21 working day. He argued that he should be paid according to calendar day computation basis i.e. 3/30 days.

I cannot find any labour law clarifying on incomplete month wates computation. beside his salary is above RM5,000, so it is not covered by labour act, he should follow the company policy. Am i right? Can you advise me on this. Thank you very much.

Since he is a monthly rated worker, he is paid on all days of the month including all rest days, holidays and so on. Simple maths can tell that his pay should be (5000/31) x 3. No need to look for law.

Dear KL Siew

Our Company policy is to pay staff based on working day computation and his salary is above RM1.5k, he is not covered under labour law.

So he is to follow company policy computation. am i right?

(5000/21) x 1 = 238.1
(5000/31) x 3 = 483.87
He will surely feel shortchanged and everyone will.

Dear KL Siew

We employed 1 new staff who commenced work on 27 June 2011. We compute his salary based on working day basis ( again, this is as per the company policy), he get (5000/22 working day) x 4 =909.09 instead of the following:
(5000/30 calendar day) x 4 =666.66
so he gets more.
I think everyone has to follow company policy, whatever formula used, sometimes you get more, sometimes you will get less.

Well, the company is losing then. OK, if that's the case, it is now up to the staff of yours to decide what to do next.
