I am just graduate from Uni few months ago and now working as exec level in a local company..
I found that in local company they usually do not pay OT claim for executive level staff although they work overtime.. I heard that this is not against the labour law since their salary is above rm1500..
Is this really true?
The reason why the law doesn't address people with salaries above a certain threshold (ie. salary being an indicator of professional status) - is because the law assumes that a highly educated person like you is intelligent enough to take care of yourself when dealing with your employer. It assumes that you have read and understood the contracts that you signed, and that you are clever enough not to be exploited by your employer.
In the adult world, the reward that you get for your work is a result of the supply of & demand for the skills that you possess. If you feel that you should be paid for the OT that you put in, but you are not... then don't do OT. It's that simple... really.This post has been edited by seantang: Aug 13 2009, 11:13 PM
