Are Companies Ready For The Amended Employment Act?

Canna Tan, Senior HR manager

Are Companies Ready For The Amended Employment Act?

It’s now 2023, which means some big changes for how businesses operate as the amended Employment Act came into force, effective January 1st. 

The amendments were initially supposed to come into play in September 2022, but was deferred as it seemed like companies were generally not ready, with some, including the Malaysian Employers Federation, attributing this to businesses still having to manage and adapt to the aftermath of the pandemic, the recent floods, and other uncertainties on the global stage.

So what does this mean for companies moving forward? The Enterprise team discussed this with Canna Tan, a senior HR manager.
