In response to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases in Malaysia, the government just announced CMCO will come into effect from midnight 12.00 am, 13th to 26th October 2020 in Sabah, and from 12.00 am, 14th to 27th Oct 2020 in Selangor, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur.

During the above-mentioned period, inter-district traveling will be barred and workers will need to show their work passes or consent letters from employers to move from one district to another.

We have created an example of what Covid-19 Essential Employee Authorization letter could look like, we wish that will serve as a starting place for you to create your own essential employee letter.

As we are uncertain about how long the CMCO would continue, it is advisable that you as an employer starts planning shift work (alternative week or by group) or work from home for your people.
