TRAINING ON THE 7th & 8th April 2020

As you might be aware the amendments to the Industrial Relations Act 1967 comes into force in the next 3 months and also the Employment Act 1955 (by year end).

All companies will have new challenges in employee engagement which they need to be prepared for.

I am aware of the challenges you face from your immediate superior and also your non-HR Managers, which I summarise them as follow:-

What are the challenges face by HR on a daily basis?

  • Bosses who do not listen;
  • Having to bear the brunt of incompetent managers who take misconduct, indiscipline and poor performance lightly and into their own hands without knowing the law or informing HR;
  • Being left in the ‘dark’ until the 11th hour and when things get out of hand then HR is brought in to resolve the problem.

Ask yourself….with the amendments to the IRA 1967 is your Company really prepared?

The harsh reality on how the amendments will affect Employers….

  1. As the HR Ministers reference has been abolished and now all cases are now going to trial if they are not resolved.  Are the HR ready to go thru the rigors of trial;
  • Are employers prepared to pay interest of up to 8% on its Awards and Backwages of more than 24 months is awarded for prejudicing unionised employees;
  • An employee will not accept any offer from the company in lieu of going to trial during the conciliation stage;
  • The employer needs to pay the award sum notwithstanding an Appeal has been he has filed as  an appeal does not operate as a stay of execution:
  • Travel ban imposed on Directors for not paying the Award sum. 
  • RM 50,000-00 fine imposed by the Court for non-compliance with the Award.
