Moral Effect of Workers After Reinstatement
Terminating employees should be performed in the most ethical and professional manner to avoid the business from potential litigation arising from the termination. It is irrelevant whether the terminated employee was good or bad worker. What is concerned, the employer must be able to justify the dismissal is with good cause and the reasons shall be notified to the employee. Section 20 of the Malaysian Industrial Relation Act 1967 provides that an employee who claims he has been unfairly dismissed may make a representation to the DG for IR (“Representation”) within 60 days from the date of his dismissal. Thus, employee may file claim for reinstatement against the company whenever they are unhappy. The study aimed to explore the moral effect of employees after the reinstatement. Interviews were conducted with 7 reinstated employees who were identified from the Department of Industrial Relation Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. The result shown that majority of these workers whom precede their complaints under Section 20 of the IRA 1967 returned to work. Some have confirmed that they received similar treatment and only few said they received different treatment.
