Tackling Discrimination at The Pre-Employment Stage

Datuk Hj. Shamsuddin Bardan, Executive Director, Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF)

Tackling

The Human Resources Ministry has issued a statement calling it "premature" to suggest that the government won't follow through with the proposed anti-discrimination provisions to protect job seekers as part of amendments to the Employment Act 1955.


A report by Malaysiakini said that the anti-discrimination provisions would be dropped due to objections from the Malaysian Employers Federation or MEF on grounds that the Employment Act 1955 does not govern or regulate the pre-employment stage.


We speak to its Executive Director, Datuk Hj Shamsuddin Bardan to get MEF’s clarification on this matter.
