Under the government’s new work-from-home (WFH) directive, employers must pay the full salary of all employees during the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).

Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan said employers are also not allowed to force workers to use their annual or unpaid leave during this period.

“This matter is in line with the order and statement issued by the Human Resources Ministry during the movement control order (MCO) in March.”

“However, employers can discuss with their employees over any actions and decisions taken for the sake of common interests,” he said.

Saravanan added that those with further questions can contact the Department of Labour Peninsula Malaysia (JTKSM) through the phone numbers 03-8886 2352/03-8886 2409/03-8888 9111.

There has been plenty of confusion over the SOPs of the WFH directive since the move was announced earlier this week, so here’s a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI):
