I worked with a company with 3 months contract. Before my contract ends, my Head of Department asked me to leave the company immediately without prior notice or exit interview due to miscommunication. I was on leave due to Chickenpox and I haven't got my pay yet till today. What I should do know? My salary is below RM5,000.

Please assist me.

Normally there is no provision for long term medical benefits for short term contracts. Refer to the contract signed again.

For your delayed salary payment, bring this matter to the nearest Labour Department if there is no response from the company.

Yes, you can claim for your salary as well as the payment in lieu of notice period when you file a complaint at the Labour Department nearest to your work place.

I was in a similar situation as you but different scenario.

I tendered my resignation on the 8/6/17 . I fully comply to all the T&C stated in my offer letter dated 4/5/17. But the CEO doesn't want me to comply and ask me leave earlier from the 1 month notice period. But he doesn't want to compensate me.

Till today the company still owed me in back salary for May 17. Not to mention my June salary which I work till the 14/6. According to the Labour law, the employer must not exceed the 7th of the mth as its the cut off date. But today already the 20/6. Still no salary and I had resigned on the 14/6/17. 

Upon advise , I will file the case to Labour office soon to deal with them.

According to the Employment Act 1955, it don't covers those who are earning above  $2000 or $2500. If, I were to bring the Employer to the Labour office, what are the chances that I can recover my salary? 

Secondly if I have no chances to recover my salary at the Labour office what are the other channel which I can consider in my case? Please advise.

Thank you.

Do you have proof that the CEO  have terminated you? The co could claim self termination by not turning up for next two days. You should have lodge a case with Labour Dept the next working day.

Just file a case with the nearest Labour Dept now.

Dear Sir, 

The Employer didn't terminate me. Initially he ask me to go and don't waste anymore of his time and my time since I had tender my resignation. But I say, I will comply to the 1 month notice period or else the company compensate me in leau salary. He doesn't agree with me. He reply, Why should we? Indirectly speaking, he has committed a breach of my employment condition. But I forgive him and I told him, please settle all my outstanding May Salary and also my current June salary till the 14/6. Then  come to settlement of this issue and I leave on the day itself . I believe the company is having serious cash flow problems to pay employee salary.

You can go to the Labour Court if your salary is less than RM 5,000.00. The Labour Court has jurisdiction to hear disputes relating to monetary issues if your salary is less than RM 5,000.00. If your salary is above RM 5,000.00, then your only avenue is civil courts.
