Re: Rules in Company

Dear sir,

I would like to get some advices from you.

Is there any Malaysia Labour Law stated staffs or employees canít talk, chit chat, or laugh in office?

The current office that Iím attach, they donít allow the colleagues chit chat, laugh among in the office. The office no partition, so even we talk in very slow tone, it still can heard. But, is the superior have the rights to warn or give us warning letter by not talking much?

Second issue, I have a colleague, he joined almost 3months meaning he still under probation. He has diagnosed high blood pressure after he joined this company. He has all the MC and medical report to prove he is sick. Management not giving him medical leave and minus his salary, he wanted to resign for his own health, but management is not allowing. Pls advice.

1. To me, employees are employed to do work and do things that are relevant to the work. Try to consult the Labour Office whether it alright to talk, chitchat and laugh in the office or not.
2. Advise that staff concerned to complain to the Labour Office. I think valid MC should be accepted.

Thanks for your reply.

1) Most of topic are relevant to works, those not relevant are during lunch or after working hours. Only sometimes when work flow not heavy will chit chat a bit, even via chit chat, we are still doing our tasks.

2) thanks for your advise

Different superiors have different behaviour. Some may take those acts as sort of disrespect. Be sensitive to superior's angin.

Even if you whisper, in an open space office, it can also disrupt other colleagues. Laughing is definitely not related to work and the laughter is quite disturbing to others not in the joke. It is not a matter of being sensitive to a superior's angin but to be sensitive and respective of other colleagues too. When you are in their shoes, you will understand.
