I am Senior Manager level of one Japanese Company located Nilai, Negeri Sembilan. This company have two plants in Malaysia, one in Nilai and another one in Jengka, Pahang.
Actually, I was employed in Jengka plant since last 1995, I married and my wife also in same company in Jengka plant.
All this while since year 1994 till 2007, I was appointed as Senior Manager ( * as the Head of Department ) of so call
Peripheral Devices Department. In the year 2008 this deparment had been closed due to product business demad down due to
Economic down turn and no more customer demand on that particilar products.
As such, I was instructed to transfer to other product department, but only holding a very less responsibility. After a few months suddenly
Management decided to downgrade my position to so call ' Senior Specialist ', which basically this position just specific for whom that
no any sub ordinates under him.
For that reason, my Head of Department allowances also been ' CUT off'.
In the middle of year 2012, I was instructed by Management to transfer to Nilai plant, totally change of job nature from manufacturing
department to corporate administration ( HR ) department.
At the same time, my wife decided to resign after company rejected her application to also transfer to Nilai.
That are all about my job history, below are my questions seeking your advice ;
1. Job position downgrade - am I have a right to take action which this is against the law ?
2. Wife resigned ( salary below RM1,500 ) - did she have a right to take action which this is against the law of ' distructive dismissal '.
3. From above job story, is there any other cases that I may take consideration to take an action against the law.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you and Regards,
