Yes, that is correct. Unless you fall under the scope of the Employment Act 1955, ie, if your salary is not above RM 2,000, then unless your contract of employment provides for compensation in the event of retrenchment, then unfortunately your not legally entitled to compensation. However i would suggest you file a claim at the Industrial Relations Department for unlawful dismissal. In this way, the Company might contemplate giving you some sort of settlement package.
