Malaysian employees set to enjoy 121 rest days, excluding leave

PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysian employees will spend at least 35 per cent of the 366 days this leap year away from work. They will enjoy a minimum of 121 rest days, including weekends and public holidays. This excludes their annual leave which, according to the Employment Act 1955, is a minimum of eight days for those who have worked for less than two years at a company. Employees who provide continuous service of between two and five years are entitled to at least 12 days while those serving over five years must receive at least 16 days. Since three out of the 13 gazetted public holidays - Prophet Muhammad's birthday on Feb 5, Hari Raya Puasa on Aug 19 and Malaysia Day on Sept 16 - fall on Sundays, employees will get another three weekdays off.
