Annulment of Working on Saturdays and Rearrangement of Payment Day
- Mc Orange Institute
This petition is made against Mc Orange Institute to annul Saturdays as working days, and also to set the last days of the month (30th or 31st) as the payment day for its staff. We, as the staff of the institute are not satisfied with the long working hours, which start at 8:30a.m. till 5:30p.m. during weekdays, and 8:30a.m. till 12:30p.m. on Saturdays. The normal office hours in Malaysia are from 9a.m till 5p.m weekdays, and 9a.m. till 12:30p.m. on alternate Saturdays. Alternatively, (This is especially true with educational institute/companies and Mc Orange is an educational institute.)companies which want to cease operation on Saturdays may extend the working hours from 9a.m. till 5:30p.m. during weekdays. In our case, not only we have to work an extra hour from Monday to Friday, we are also obligated to come to work on Saturdays. In the Malaysian Labour Act Enactment 1955, the maximum number of working hours per week is 48, and our cumulative working hours per week is well over this limit.
As for the case regarding our payment day, we request the company to set up the last day of the month as our payment day. This is due to all kinds of complications resulted from receiving late payment, well into the end of the first week of the next month. Most credit cards' bills, telephones and other utilities' bills are due within the first few days of each month, this has resulted in late payment of our utilities' bills, which requires us to pay fines.
The purpose of this petition is to get as many as possible staffs' names in order to get the annulment of working on Saturdays and to get the management to rearrange payment day to be the last day of the month istead of within the first week of the following month.
