Re: Overtime Rate for Public Holiday - Security Guard
My Company has 4 guards. 2 are working for day shift and another 2 for night shift based on 12 hours rotating shift schedule. We work 5 days a week. Would appreciate if you could clarify the following:
1) Sat and Sun shall be deemed as overtime work right?
2) If they work on Public Holiday, is this the right calculation:
Example : Work 10 hours
Basic Salary : RM1200
Formula (Less than 8 hours)
= ORP x 2
= 1200/26 x 2 = RM92.30
Formula (More than 8 hours-Balance 2 hours)
= OT hours x 3.0 x Hourly rate of pay
= 2 x 3.0 x [1200/26/8] = RM34.61
10 hours = RM92.30 + RM34.61 = RM126.91
3) My boss said since they work 7 days a week ( Sat&Sun-OT), to get their ORP, their basic salary shall be divided by 30 days instead of 26 days. Is that correct according to Employment Acc 1955?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
