The Employment Act 1955 forms the basis of employment contracts between employer and certain categories of mostly non-management employees. It also serves as a guideline for employees who are not protected under the EA.
The EPF Act 1991 is a retirement scheme for employees while the SOCSO Act 1969 is an insurance scheme for Malaysian employees for employment injury or invalidity. Both employer and employee are required by law to contribute to EPF and SOCSO.
The programme covers all the relevant aspects of the EPF and SOCSO Acts, Income tax deductions and Employee Insurance Scheme ie duties and liabilities of employers, the benefits and conditions for benefits and procedures for making claims.
Presentations, case situations, discussions
There will be Q & A sessions throughout the one day seminar.
General Managers, Human Resource Managers, Executives and Supervisors.
All HR Managers and Executives need to know the main provisions of the EA to avoid providing benefits less than the Employment Act. They may at times need to explain to employees some of the main provisions of the Employment Act so as to avoid misunderstanding.
They also may need to know the procedure to register new employees and to inform EPF & SOCSO of terminated employees. They may need to know how to make SOCSO claims for injury and invalidity.
As part of their corporate social responsibility and welfare, HR Managers and Executives may want to go even further and explain the benefits of EPF and SOCSO to employees so that employees or their families may claim the full benefit within the stipulated deadlines. Employers may also be able to help employees in this regard.
Ethical employers need to know the EA, EPF and SOCSO and EIS Acts to provide maximum support to employees
