PETALING JAYA: Private sector employees who are attending “Training of Trainers” (TOT) sessions for the national service programme are not allowed to apply for “unrecorded leave,” according to the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF). 

Its executive director Shamsuddin Bardan said there were no provisions for those undergoing training to become national service trainers to be given “unrecorded leave.” 

“Unlike civil servants, 'unrecorded leave' is not an option for private sector employees. For the private sector, leave options available are annual leave, unpaid leave and compassionate leave,” he said when contacted. 

Shamsuddin said the federation had been advising employers to allow employees to take annual leave or unpaid leave to attend TOT sessions.
