Employment Law in Malaysia
This book features the history of industrial relations in Malaysia, highlighting aspects such as trade unions, migrant workers and early legislative responses to such issues. The author presents rights-based labour jurisprudence in a practical manner, emphasising current issues such as obligations and the employer-employee relationship, changes in the way people work and how these have initiated a transformation in the judicial approach towards a worker's legal status and rights.
The scope of employment protection or statutory rights and obligations; fundamental aspects of employment law such as termination of employment, unfair dismissal and constructive dismissal are comprehensively considered and discussed clearly in a succinct manner. Designed to present a complete picture of the state of Employment Law in Malaysia today, it effectively provides an excellent historical and evolutional background in a perfect combination of topics related to the current landscape especially in Malaysia.
