Looking after our Gig Workers

As part of our monthly check-in on the employment scene, we're putting gig workers in the spotlight. First, we get updates on the gig economy and the place it holds in Malaysia’s employment landscape. And then, we look at what’s touted as a landmark amendment Bill that aims to protect the interests and welfare of gig workers.
