In the first place, the company should have a clear policy on punctuality as staff coming late for work is a disciplinary matter. Let everyone know about the policy. In the policy, make clear to them about the penalties that may include salary deduction and that they may be subjected to other disciplinary actions. Some companies are every particular about punctuality.

KL Siew,

From the statement you make "may include salary deduction"... meaning we can still deduct our staff salary if they come in late for like 1 hour or 2 hours?

Is this legal? If yes, how do i calculate the deduction?

Appreciate your advice on this matter.

I don't think it is ok for an employee to come late for 1 or 2 hours and the employer cannot do anything about it. Have a clear policy for it including how to calculate the penalty for being late for work.
