EIS Briefing by Dato’ Mohd Sahar, Chief EIS Officer

The Employment Insurance System (EIS) was approved by the Dewan Rakyat on October 26, 2017 and will be implemented in January 2018. The EIS is intended as a safety net for retrenched Malaysian employees only. Payments made by both employer and employee are to be used to fund support payments to retrenched employees and assistance in job search, career counselling, and retraining.

Dato’ Mohd Sahar, Chief EIS Officer conducted his first briefing with AMCHAM members on November 21, 2017 at AMCHAM Executive Office. We were grateful for the opportunity to have the Chief EIS Officer himself to brief our members and to have an open discussion as many were not familiar with the EIS.

AMCHAM would like to thank Dato’ Mohd Sahar for briefing our members and most importantly providing members with sufficient information prior to the implementation of EIS in January 2018.
