According to New Straits Times, the Human Resources Ministry is seeking to tighten and make changes to the current labor regulations and laws.
The laws include the 64-year old Employment Act, which was legislated in 1955; the 60 year-old Trade Unions Act which was legislated in 1959; and the 62-year-old Industrialisation Act, which was legislated in 1957. Other laws which will see changes are the Minimum Standards of Housing and Amenities Act 1990, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994.
The move to amend these labor laws was to safeguard the rights of the workers.
The proposed legislative amendments would include a clause on workplace discrimination but this would take time since it would involved detailed discussions with the relevant stakeholders.
Another major proposed changes in the labor laws would be the provision to provide Social Security Organisation benefits to 1.4 million housewives nationwide.
The amendments seems to be a good effort in the right direction.
