Re: Working on rest day

Hi Sir/Madam,

I would like to ask if calculation are correct for below scenario:

Monthly paid worker, starts work on 4th Jan, works 6 days a week, work on 1 rest day for 10 hours.

Normal day pay: [salary/26 (fixed for every month)] x 23days (23 days from 31days of Jan- 1 PH - 4 Sundays)
Rest day pay: [salary/26 (fixed for every month)] x 2 x 1 day
Rest day OT: [salary/26 (fixed for every month)] x 2 x 2 hours

Is the above calculation correct? And is the 26days used here to divide the salary correct?

Thank you.

But under Section 60(i)(1a) of the Employment Act, the formula is to divide by 26.

"(1A) Where an employee is employed on a monthly rate of pay, the ordinary rate of pay shall be calculated according to the following formula:

monthly rate of pay

You can give a call to the Labour Department (Jabatan Tenaga Kerja) and get an official ruling about your queries. Discuss it with one of the officers there.
