问: 公司在Wesak Day照常营业,没有补假,请问合法吗?

  • 根据1955年劳工法令第60D条文,所有僱员每一年享有11天有薪公共假期,其中5天为强制公共假期,即国庆日、国家元首华诞、苏丹或州元首华诞或联邦直辖区日、劳动节及马来西亚日。
  • 除了法定的5天公假,其余6天替代公假则由僱主决定。其余的6天是1951年假期法令所公布的公共假期 。
  • 以及任何一天在1951年假期法令第8条文下所被政府宣布的公共假期。若是州政府所宣布的假期,雇主有权力决定是否遵从。但如果是由联邦政府根据1951年假期法令第8条文下所宣布的假期,那么雇主必须遵从,如果当天员工必须做工,雇主必须要给予员工双薪/以补回一天假期的福利,否则将面对罚款不超过RM10,000。
  • 雇主需要在当年还未开始前,在明显的地方,公告员工所应得的这6天公共假期。
  • 员工必须清楚理解公司的制度,查询公司另外的6天代公假为哪些。如果公司没有列明卫塞节为代公假日,就需要照常上班,也没有补假或双倍薪水。

问: 如果员工在法定公共假期申请annual leave,  公司应该补假吗?(员工在事前并不晓得当天是公共假期,因为是政府临时宣布的)

  • 在劳工法令60A(1B)中列明:当任何公共假期或补假期落在雇员的病假或年假, 或在工人赔偿法令, 或社会保险法令雇员受伤不能工作期间, 雇主必须另补一天以代替之。

60D. (1) Every employee shall be entitled to a paid holiday at his ordinary rate of pay on the following days in any one calendar year:
(a) on eleven of the gazetted public holidays, five of which shall be—
(i) the National Day;
(ii) the Birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong;
(iii) the Birthday of the Ruler or the Yang di-Pertua Negeri, as the case may be, of the State in which the employee wholly or mainly works under his contract of service, or the Federal Territory Day, if the employee wholly or mainly works in the
Federal Territory;
(iv) the Workers’ Day; and
(v) Malaysia Day; and

(b) on any day appointed as a public holiday for that particular year under section 8 of the Holidays Act 1951 [Act 369].

1B Where any of the public holidays or any other day substituted therefore as provided in subsection (1) or (1A) falls within the period during which an employee is on sick leave or annual leave to which the employee is entitled under this Act, or falls during the period of temporary disablement under the Workmen’s Compensation Act 1952, or under the Employees Social Security Act
1969, the employer shall grant another day as a paid holiday in substitution for such public holiday or the day substituted therefore.
