Re: 13th month bonus


I hope to ask for some help on 13th month pay.
my employment letter mentioned that i will be entitled to a 13th month pay upon completion of 12 month's full service. If i have work for part of the year i will receive pro-rata pay. The payment date is on 30 Nov of each year.

My termination notice is 2 months. If i resign on 1 Nov , am i still entitled for the 13th month pay ,either full month pay or pro-rata ?
(if i resign on 1 nov, my last date will be 31 Dec , i am still in service with the company on the 13th month payout date.)

Thank you very much.

You better get your bonus first before you put in your resignation. Employers normally will not pay bonus to those who have resigned.

Hi KL Siew, may I know whether the 13th month bonus, does it compulsory for employer to pay employee under Malaysia Law?
