Can Malaysian Employers Compel Employees To Vaccinate?

As companies and governments around the world begin mandating employees and contractors to be vaccinated, the Malaysian government has not yet made the vaccination mandatory, although there are discussions to do so. So questions remain whether employers can make vaccinations mandatory and what happens if employees refuse to be vaccinated? We ask Vijayan Venugopal, Employment & Administrative Lawyer at Shearn Delamore & Co to help us clear the air on this issue.
