Are there change needed to policies or only the wages?

Dear members-

In new wage code changes, do we also need to make change any policies or is it only for the wage ?

Yes there might be changes needed to policies as well. For example, the concept of who is a “Worker” is now clearly defined. The term “Employee” is also defined clearly, and it includes “Worker”. There are few provisions such as the ones that regulate working hours, overtime, annual leave that apply only to workers and not all employees. So employer need to look at their HR policies, organization structure, role, and responsibility of every employee to understand the impact of provisions of the code and realign as required.
