Re: Overtime & unpaid leave
I have an admin staff who earns more than RM1,500 and therefore is not covered by EA 1955. Her working days are from Mon-Fri (9am - 5pm).
Previously, when she had to work 1 day's overtime on a Saturday, we paid her 1 day's salary, calculated by dividing her monthly salary over 20 days.
However, recently after utilising her annual leave, she took 1 day's unpaid leave. I would have thought that I should also divide this over 20 days (keeping with the same policy as overtime) when calculating the deductions from her salary. However, some people seem to think that I should deduct her unpaid leave by calculating over 31 days (which are the number of calendar days for that particular month).
The contract is silent as to how these should be calculated. We would like to set a proper company's policy on these calculations. Please advice. Thank you!
