Course Introduction

Employment Law or Labour Law concerns the legal relationship between employers and employees. Though there are well over a dozen Acts that relate to employers in Malaysia, it is perhaps the Employment Act 1955 & Industrial Relations Act 1967 that have the greatest impact on the industrial relationship between the employer and his employee. Much is said about having satisfied employees in a harmonious environment for greater stability and productivity, but is everything being done to attain this?

There are times when errant employees must be disciplined failing which employers may risk losing the loyalty of their good and productive workers. Dismissal will always be traumatic for the workman, but wrongful dismissal could be very expensive for the employer, both, financially and in reputation. Before a severe punishment is meted out, a domestic inquiry is recommended.

It is often held that employees receive favoured treatment at the Industrial Court, but this so-called ‘protection’ arises not because the employee is right but more so because the process implemented by the employer was not.

To achieve the objective of having satisfied employees in a harmonious environment for greater stability and productivity, it is not only necessary to know the provisions of the law, but to understand and also know its intentions and interpretations. It is only when employers know and understand what is required of them will they be in a position to respond positively for the effective management of their human capital.

This programme is designed to do just that!
