Malaysia’s Human Resources Ministry has affirmed that the upcoming public holiday on 9 September, in conjunction with the Agong’s birthday, is compulsory for employees, Bernama reported.

The article also cited a statement from the ministry, which said this public holiday was provided for under section 60D (1) of the Employment Act 1955. This statement was issued to address concern amongst employers and private sector employees, who had confused the recent 30 July public holiday for the anniversary of the Agong’s installation, with his birthday holiday.

Following this, the ministry has stated that employers are required to inform staff on whether the holiday would be observed on that day or in an off-in-lieu. If they fail to do so, employees who have worked on the public holiday will have to be paid in accordance to the stipulated rate of payment for such occurrences.
