Working in the F&B industry can be stressful and challenging. But who would’ve thought that one of the challenges of working in F&B requires you getting fined for taking unpaid leave?

In a recent viral tweet by user @imperialhalq, he shares an insight into what it’s like to work at an eatery where fines are imposed for practically anything and everything.

He not only provides us with the details but also goes as far as showing the list of things for which staff at the eatery would be fined. The worst part of it all is that staff would be fined RM100 for taking 1 day of unpaid leave.

In the list, it can be seen that all staff can be fined for taking unpaid leave, being late for work, failing to inform before taking medical leave, or even for taking toilet breaks.

While some breaches of conduct may be anticipated, netizens found penalties for actions like taking a toilet break or sick leave to be shocking and unethical.

As the story circulates online, the management of the eatery swiftly reminded staff that immediate action would be taken for publishing their company policy online.

According to New Straits Times, Human Resources Minister Steven Sim Chee Keong stated that such practices contravene Part 4 of the Labour Act, which permits salary deductions only in accordance with the law.

He added,

“Employers cannot deduct salaries except for items allowed by law, such as Employees Provident Fund (EPF), Social Security Organisation (Socso), and income tax.”

New Straits Times also reported that the restaurant chose not to comment on the details of the report. However, it appears to involve the individual who publicly shared the company’s policies and cautioned employees about potential consequences.


Netizens started flooding the comment section as they share their thoughts on the whole situation

“Isn’t the company aware of Malaysia’s Employment Act? How can you be fined for taking medical leave?”
