PETALING JAYA | The Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) has drawn flak from MPs and a former Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) CEO over a call to cut the wages of employees working from home.
MEF executive director Shamsuddin Bardan had reportedly said firms could lower wages of such staff.
He said firms that gave employees travel allowances should not continue to do so if the workers chose to work from home.
In response, former youth and sports minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said employees who worked from home still had to fork out money.
“They pay for their own electricity and internet bills. Often, they have to work until night, too.
