Why do we allow the Commissioner for Labour to extend the suspension period for termination due to misconduct?

With the amendment of the Employment Act to cover higher-earning managers and executives, there could be more complex misconduct issues.

Employers may need more time to investigate the alleged misconduct. For example, an inquiry to identify if an individual misused company funds may require accounting forensics.

In such cases, the employer will need to seek approval from the Commissioner for Labour to extend the suspension period beyond 1 week.
