Re: staff need dialysis treatment and serious affect company operation

We have a permanent staff need dialysis treatment recent. But it was serious affect company operation due his dialysis treatment 3 day per week (company working day- 5 day per week ). He also unsuccessful provide medical certificate to company start from 11/04/2016 until 31/05/2016 although he verbally inform to department secretary.
We already give him first warning letter due his poor performance and attendance.
As a company, is that we can terminate his contract by use medically boarded out or any labor law can support the action taken by company ? What procedure can company do to handle this kind of case?
Is that necessary for company give 3 warning letter to staff before terminate their contract?

Terminating an employee because of his illness may not be a good idea. If you are think of medical boarding out, you can consult SOCSO for help.

I have already told you it would not be a good idea to terminate his service because of that. If the company still wants to do it, so be it. I also told to consult SOCSO about medical board out. Meanwhile, you should consult the Industrial Relations Department about termination of employees and the possible consequences. .
