So recently we have to advise our client whether his employee falls under the Employment Act 1955 (“EA”) or not. If the employee falls under EA, the employee will be entitled to the benefits under the EA.
You can check First Schedule of the EA here for details.
Boss asked me to check the Jabatan Tenaga Kerja (“JTK”) across our office. So I went there. Waited for 5 minutes and a lady gave me Job Application Form.
She thought I am a job seeker.
It turns out that they are not Jabatan Tenaga Kerja branch or anything. The logo outside their premise is merely marketing strategy to say that they are authorised to do working permits for foreign workers.
Ok. Back to work then.
