Court: No reason needed to end expat musicians' contract


KUALA LUMPUR: Employers do not need to give a reason for not extending the employment of expatriates on fixed term contracts, ruled the Industrial Court.

In the case between seven foreign musicians against the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Industrial Court chairman Hapipah Monel ruled that a foreigner's employment in Malaysia was subject to obtaining work permits from the Immigration Department.
