The Malaysian Ministry of Human Resources (MOHR) has recently released the proposed amendments to the Industrial Relations Act 1967 (IRA), the Trade Unions Act 1959 (TUA), and the Employment Act 1955 (EA). The proposed changes are part of MOHR's initiative to elevate the labour standards in Malaysia to be in line with that of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Convention and to have labour laws that are more reflective of the current employment climate in Malaysia.

This alert, which describes the potentially wide-ranging effects on existing dispute resolution mechanisms under the IRA, is PART ONE of a series of three alerts. Two other alerts will be distributed in the coming weeks to cover the proposed amendments to the TUA and the EA.
