You can choose to go to work on 16th Sep, and perhaps on other holidays too if you think they are too many holidays...
It's a confirmed public holiday. Enjoy!
A wise man refrains from talking but a fool utters rubbish.
I thought it is not a compulsory public holiday?? The employer can deny it..
last i heard it's a gazetted holiday, i tot all gazetted holidays are compulsory?

Under the employment act, the company can observe minimum 10 days of public holidays and Malaysia Day is not compulsory....
Lick Hung holiday.....
House? No holiday.... jaga anak
Check out the laws for employers (Employment Act as mentioned by Pokemon). there are many books on this in the bookshops. The employers have to abide by only a few compulsory holidays such as Agung's Birthday and Merdeka Day (31st Aug) for example. Other gazetted holidays are up to the management. Workers get compensated if they work on public holidays but cannot demand it to be compulsoryOriginally Posted by GreyShadow
Its almost impossible to have a large percentage of a workforce to go off on a Public holiday for many establishments especially in the service industry or public service. How if PDRM do this, how if hotels shut half down, how if numerous eateries and fast food places shut down?..of course the answers is obvious. But then compensation must also be perceived as attractive. In those days of meagre salaries, public holiday was 2X pay.Originally Posted by kwchang
Many companies say that since it is not an observed public holiday, no compensation and all workers need to work as normal working day.Originally Posted by bslee
Susah lah... employee exploitation and rogue employers still exist in this cowboy land country lah eventhough this is 21st century. If I'm not mistaken there's eateries who work their employees from morn till nite everyday, hardly given a day off (except maybe a few hours off), public holidays are probably non existent to them employees. I suppose if those exploited don't kick up any rukus, the gahmen will buat bodo saja..and it all carry on till the end of time.Originally Posted by pokemon
Where can those workers address to? The employers are not breaking any laws.Originally Posted by bslee
This is where staff unions play a role to safeguard employees interests but its bound by long existing policies on formation and effectiveness. Of course there's been cases of unions being high handed and seen as negative impact on a company's prosperity. All this another story lah..Originally Posted by pokemon
If you're an employee, ensure you learn your rights and know whats best for you or not.
It is so simple to amend the compulsory public holiday in our employment act but it is not done so. It is the lawmakers who may be too busy with other agenda or Malaysia Day is a normal non-compulsory public holiday...Originally Posted by bslee
