The Employment Act 1955 forms the basis of employment contracts between employer and employee. The Industrial Relations Act 1967 deals with unfair dismissals. The domestic inquiry is compulsory in cases of major misconduct and dismissals.

CCH Executive Events presents a 2-day workshop that gives you a practical understanding of the main provisions of the Employment Act 1955 and the relevant areas of the Industrial Relations Act 1967 (both updated). It also shows how a domestic inquiry should be conducted to achieve a fair and equitable approach to disciplinary action.

Delivered in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner and with as little legal jargon whenever possible, you will learn how to deal with all the basic legal matters related to employee relations. Learn to:
• Draw up legal employment contracts under Malaysian law
• Take equitable disciplinary action under the law
• Carry out an equitable domestic inquiry acceptable to the Industrial Court
• Avoid legal problems in applying the laws and deciding on dismissals and constructive dismissals

Through case studies, interactive discussions and practical exercises, complex issues will be broken down into easy to comprehend principles to enable you to understand the law and avoid the pitfalls.
