According to Minister of Defense and Senior Minister for Security Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob, employers who force their workers to be present at the workplace despite being non-essential services can be reported to the Human Resource Ministry (MHR).

He added that workers who are wearing the quarantine band should not be forced to be present at the workplace. These incidents can be reported to the MHR hotline at 03-88862409, 03-88862352 and 03-88889111 for violating the standard operating procedure (SOP).

“Workers are also told to report if employers infringe the 60 per cent capacity allowed. If those wearing pink bands were ordered to work, I hope the cases would be reported to MHR so that action could be taken as all parties should cooperate to ensure there is no SOP violation,” he stated to a media conference, according to BERNAMA.

“Employers who force their workers to work should face action but I understand their workers have no choice as they could have been warned or face termination,” he added.

Ismail Sabri, nonetheless, said there were cases where action had been taken and the premises were ordered to close and issued compounds as well.


“InsyaAllah, if everybody cooperates on the matter (compliance to SOP) and total lockdown, we could together flatten the Covid-19 curve,” he said.


Besides, he said the National Security Council (MKN) also received many complaints on business premises and factories which are not categorised as essential services operating during the total lockdown (Full MCO).

“We received many complaints from the people including social media that such premises are open and operating despite being prohibited. As such, Prime Minister (Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin) has ordered for the tightening of enforcement,” he added.

Previously on 30 May, Ismail Sabri had already mentioned that strict actions will be taken against employers who force their employees to go to the office for work, exceeding the allowed 60 per cent capacity.

For those who wish to lodge your complaints, you can call the Malaysian Government Call Centre at 03-80008000. You can also download the Working for Workers (WFW) application by the Ministry of Human Resources via the Apple store or Google play store to report employers who breach the government’s instructions.
