Dear Mr Siew,
Thank you for your prompt response and advice.
May I make another point and query?
EA 69B(1) states "Notwithstanding the provision of this Act, the powers of the Director General under Paragraph 69(1)(a) shall extend to employees whose wages exceed 1,500 ringgit but does not exceed 5,000 ringgit."
EA 69B(3) states "Save for Parts XV and XVI which shall apply with the necessary modifications, the provisions of this Act shall not apply to the employees referred to in subsection (1)." (or put another way "... this Act SHALL apply to those NOT referred to in subsection (1)")
For someone earning say RM6,000, it seems 69B(1) excludes from EA;
but 69B(3) seems to include. Is my interpretation correct? If not then what law governs those earning more than RM5,000?
