RE: CIRCULAR ~ PH IN SELANGOR FOR MALAYSIA CUP VICTORY

Dear Members,

Please note that the Selangor State Government has announced that Monday 14th December 2015 is declared a public holiday to celebrate the State’s Malaysia Cup victory.

This means that employers in Selangor who observe only specific public holidays in a year and NOT ALL Federal and State public holidays will not be obliged to observe 14th December as a public holiday.

For employers who in their handbook/policies have stated that they observe ALL Federal and State public holidays will have to observe 14th December as an additional public holiday.

For employees who are scheduled to work tomorrow (Monday), employers are advised to either observe Monday as a public holiday or replace Monday’s holiday with another day as a paid holiday.

We would also like to remind you that by virtue of s60D(2) of the Employment Act 1955, if the employee is absent without leave or without reasonable excuse either today or the next working day after tomorrow, he forfeits his entitlement to the holiday pay which means he will not be paid for the day he is absent and for tomorrow. 

Should you require any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you


Always serving you;

Alvin Lai YK
