SUNGAI BULOH: The salaries of the Armed Forces personnel will be reviewed to ensure it commensurates with the job they do, taking into consideration the socio-economic situation of the country, says Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu. He said the matter should be taken into consideration by the government like the salary increment proposed for low-ranking police personnel by Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador in early June. “We will also jointly support the proposal. “We also agree that it (salary) should be reviewed from time to time,” he told reporters after opening the 54th Military Cooperative General Meeting at Dewan Perhebat, Sungai Buloh army camp, here.

Letter for salary increment
PUTRAJAYA: The government has to study in detail the proposal to increase the salaries and allowances for low–ranked police staff as it would have a multiplier effect, said Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. Even though the Home Ministry supported the proposal, it cannot make a decision on its own and must refer to other parties such as the Public Service Department and Finance Ministry before tabling it in the Cabinet, he said. “With the current state of economics in the country, all parties must be patient before any decision is made on the matter,” he told reporters at the Immigration Department’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri gathering here today.

More foreign workers arrived here not knowing what their terms of employment, including their salary, are - a situation that makes them more vulnerable to exploitation. A survey last year commissioned by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) found that 15.4 per cent of non-Malaysian work permit holders said they did not receive their in-principle approval (IPA) letter before arriving in Singapore. This is up from 4 per cent in 2014, the last time a similar survey was conducted. About 2,500 work permit holders and 500 S Pass holders were polled randomly. Under the law, employers are required to mail the IPA letter to the worker after his work permit application is approved, before he leaves for Singapore. The letter contains the terms and conditions of his employment, including the basic salary. It serves as a de-facto contract, in the absence of any other written agreement. Employers who omit this step may be fined up to $10,000. On why there has been a jump in recalcitrant employers, Migrant … [Read more...] about 15% of foreign workers didn’t get IPA letters
