KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 4 (Bernama) -- The Indian High Commission here has announced revised guidelines and do*****ents for the employment of skilled and unskilled workers from India which take effect from Nov 1 and they include a minimum wage structure for them starting from RM800 a month.

Restaurant, construction and general workers, categorised as unskilled workers, should be paid a minimum wage of RM800 a month while plantation workers, including farm workers, should be paid RM850 a month.

The high commission said skilled workers of all trades were to be paid minimum wages of RM1200 a month while the minimum wage for maids would be RM1,400 a month.

It stressed that contracts which were below the minimum wage would not be endorsed by the high commission.

"Malaysian employers are also requested to bear in mind that no changes or alterations are permitted or will be accepted to the revised contract of employment, and that the Employment Contract along with the EMI form, the Letter of Undertaking and all other do*****ents should be submitted before the endorsement is done by the High Commission of India," it said.

Under the revised guidelines, the high commission said it would be mandatory for all Malaysian employers to execute an Employment Contract in the revised format.

"It will be mandatory for all Malaysian employers to have each employment contract attested by the High Commission of India prior to the submission of the contract and other do*****ents to the Protector General of Emigrants in India.

"In the absence of this attestation by the high commission, Indian nationals whose passports bear the endorsement "Emigration Check Required" will not be granted clearance by the Indian authorities and will not consequently be permitted to travel to Malaysia for work," the high commission said.

For the new format of the Employment Contract and EMI form as well as other essential do*****ents, would-be employers can visit the high commission's website at and click on the box titled "Labour matters".
