Q: If an employee has completed 3600 work days and worked for 15 years in total, is he entitled to severance pay?
In the corporate firm that my sister is currently working, employees have lunch at the firm’s dining hall. During the month of Ramadan, the company closes the dining hall down and gives lunch allowances to employees who don’t fast so that they can have lunch outside of the office.
The firm does NOT give allowances to the workers who fast. My question is: ‘What are the legitimate rights of the workers who fast? What legal actions can they take?’
I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the Boss would not allow me to take a leave.
I thought that maybe if I acted "CRAZY" then he would tell me to take a few days off. So, I hung upside down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker asked me what I was doing.
I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the Boss would think I was "CRAZY" and give me a few days off. A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, "What are you doing?"
When I was 32 week pregnant, I got a medical permit that let me work until the labor. Due to a complication in the later weeks, I had an emergency ceasarian on the 36th week. I am wondering, since I have not used any of my maternity leave, am I eligible for the entire 16 weeks or 13 weeks after labor?
Based on clause 24 of labor law no. 4857, if the wage is not paid as indicated by the law and the employment contract, the employee can terminate the employment contract by just cause and be entitled to severance pay without the need to wait for the following 20 days. The employee would need to prove that he/she wasn’t paid as previously agreed. If an employee terminates contract by just cause, he/she will be entitled to unemployment pay.
With the new legislation, workers can get their health reports from workplace physicians. However, if the company employs less than 50 workers, it is not required for the company to employ a workplace physician.
I work for a company that employs less than 50 workers within the low risk group for work injuries. When will we be obligated to employ a doctor in house? As of June 30th, 2014 based on Workplace Health and Safety Law numbered 6331 or starting from January 1st, 2013?
Certain articles of law no. 6331 concerning labor safety and workplace physician will be in effect in a gradual manner. The article on worker represententative will be effective as of January 1st, 2013. The articles on workers’ safety and workplace doctor will be in effect gradually based on the workplace’s risk level on work injuries.
