Terminating an employee can be a difficult task as the employment laws in Malaysia are generally protective of the employee’s security of tenure. As a result, the right of the employer to terminate the services of employees is limited. In Section 13(3) of the Industrial Relations Act 1967 (IRA, 1967), termination and dismissal are the prerogatives of an employer. However, many employers seem to be totally unaware that they do not have the absolute right to terminate the services of an employee.
The industrial relation statistics over the preceding five years indicates that majority of termination cases that had been referred to court were unjustified or unfair terminations. The employers could not properly defend most of the cases. Total compensation amount involved was more than RM 25 million. The mistakes and errors not only cost the organizations money, but also embarrassment. As a result, this program has been designed to equip you with the right way to handle termination of employment without violating the employment law.
