Election Is Coming And I’m Switching Off My FB

>>> Senarai Artikel Undang-Undang Buruh DI SINI <<<

Dengan tamatnya tempoh masa yang diberikan oleh Kementerian Sumber Manusia bagi majikan-majikan untuk mengimplementasikan gaji minimum, maka ribuan perkerja akan (atau sudah pun) menikmati kenaikkan gaji dalam minggu ini. Di bawah Perintah Gaji Minimum 2012, gaji minimum yang wajib diberikan kepada pekerja-pekerja adalah sebanyak RM 900 di Semenanjung Malaysia dan RM 800 di Sabah dan Sarawak. Kekecualian adalah bagi mereka dalam sektor domestik seperti tukang kebun atau amah di rumah. Bagi mereka yang masih dalam tempoh percubaan, majikan boleh mengurangkan jumlah gaji sebanyak 30%. Rujuk artikel: Gaji Minima Bagi Pekerja Di Malaysia  untuk maklumat lanjut.

Adakah Perintah Gaji Minimum 2012 juga terpakai kepada pekerja asing di negara kita? [click to continue…]

TAWAU: The implementation of the Case Management System (CMS) in Sabah and Sarawak Court aimed at reducing the time lawyers have to spend in court is at the final stage, said Sabah and Sarawak Chief Judge, Tan Sri Richard Malanjum.

Also in the pipeline is another feature where lawyers come to Court only armed with notebooks or tablets  such as Ipads to conduct trials. This can be achieved with the maximum use of the Virtual Files feature that is  already in the CMS system,” he said in his speech in conjunction with the opening of Legal Year 2013 here today.

Janji Ditepati

Here’s an interesting news from High Court Shah Alam two days ago (Thursday). You can read the news report HERE (Credit: NST). I have highlighted the important points from YA Judge Datuk Yaacob Md Sam’s decision:

  1. The suit is by more than 2,000 single mothers against the Selangor government and the Menteri Besar.
  2. It is for their (Selangor government and Menteri Besar) failure to pay them (single mothers) the allowance which was promised in the last general election (2008).
  3. The promise was made in the Pakatan Rakyat manifesto

There are 2,020 of them including Murtini and they are seeking for allowances amounting to RM10,908,000 promised to them in the Pakatan Rakyat manifesto. You can read the news report HERE.
