In case you missed it, Prime Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri announced that all companies in the private sector should pay a minimum monthly salary of RM1,500 to their employees beginning on 1st May 2022.
Apparently, many companies have been taking matters into their own hands now that the minimum wage will be increased to RM1.5k in the next few months. Sadly, there are some employees who aren’t getting a fair treatment. Just like what this TikToker had gone through recently.
The TikTok user, Sya (@notscha_), revealed that she was dismissed without being informed by her own employer. In fact, she only knew about it after she was removed from the work WhatsApp group. She then texted her boss, Anna, to ask why she was removed. She replied, “Hi Sya, you don’t need to come to work from tomorrow onwards. We will hand you your pay like usual on 5th April 2022.”
When asked what was the reason for her immediate dismissal without any notice, the employer said, “Because we received a letter from the government, saying that we need to increase the salary to RM1,500. So I was forced to make this decision. I’m really sorry.”
Sya’s video has since gone viral on TikTok, amassing over 3.2 million views at the time of writing (Friday, 25th March). Her post had also elicited massive reactions from local netizens online. Some also suggested the lady to immediately file a report against her boss at the labour office for not following the proper procedures.
Cheer up, Sya! When one door closes, another opens. :)
