Re: Business Trip on Public Holiday

Hi,

I'm going to oversea business trip for one month. However, there's one holiday falls on that month which is state sultan birthday.

May I know if the company should pay me OT for working on that day or give me a replacement leave?

If you are covered by the Employment Act and your salary is not more than RM2000, I think you should be paid (salary/26) x2 for working on that day. Anyway, your company may have their policy on such matter as mentioned by you. Consult your company's HR for clarification.

Hi Siew,

Appreciate for your reply.
I think I'm not covered under EA as my salary exceed 2K.
My company's policy do stated that we are entitled for OT if we work on public holiday during business trip.

But, the HR manager suddenly mention we should not follow M'sia holiday, we should follow that country's calendar as we are working there during that month, where this never stated inside the policy.

I think what you can do now is to bring the matter up with your top management.
