The Employment Act 1955 is the principal legislation governing employment practice in Malaysia. On 10th April 2022, a raft of amendments to the Principal Act was gazette and became law. The Act itself now, incorporates new definitions and sections covering the majority of persons in Malaysia (both local and foreign) working under a Contract of Service. This makes it imperative for Employers to understand correctly and comply with the obligations mandated by this Act.
The two days programme is crafted to provide participants with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Act, complemented by 'hands on' practical guidelines and examples for worksite implementation.

Making the laws „come alive‟ through examples, lively interaction, FAQ‟s and topical Q&A sessions, with relevant case laws. Each participant would be given a comprehensive manual with explanatory notes and case law.
