Effective 1 September 2022 : Malaysian Employers Can Approve Employee’s Application To Work From Home Due To Amendment Made To Employment Act 1955

Employers have to approve or reject FWAs applications in writing within 60 days, and will have to justify any rejections made, Deputy Minister of Human Resources Awang Hashim shared.

From 1 September 2022 (Thursday), employees in Malaysia who would like to have flexible work arrangements (FWAs) can apply for it with their respective employers, Deputy Minister of Human Resources Awang Hashim said on 23 June 2022 (Thursday).

Cited in Bernama’s report, while officiating a symposium, Minister Awang highlighted that having FWAs should be allowed for employees as part of the latest amendment to Malaysia’s Employment Act 1955, which will come into effect on 1 September.

All FWA applications must be made in writing, and can cover changes in working hours, working days, as well as the place of work.

“When the [FWAs] application is made, the employer must give an answer to the employee in writing whether to agree or reject the application within 60 days, and must give reasons why the application was rejected,” the Minister explained.

As well, Minister Awang added that a study has also been conducted on a four-day work week to understand employers in Malaysia will “face severe effects” if such an arrangement was implemented in the near future.

“Studies are still being conducted and so far, we have seen that the four working days have not reduced employee productivity. If there are employers who are affected, we will take into account the study to discuss further in the Ministry [of Human resources],” he said.

As previously discussed in Malaysiakini’s report, some of the amendments to the Employment Act 1955 include the extension of maternity leave, restrictions on terminating pregnant employees, the introduction of paternity leave, as well as the reduction of maximum weekly hours of work from 48 to 45 hours.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both
    educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the
    nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough
    folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my search for something relating to
    this.
