PETALING JAYA: The Public Service Department has allowed a maximum of 30% staff present at public sector offices from today until the end of the conditional movement control order (CMCO).
This directive applies to the civil service in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Sabah and Labuan.
Public services director-general Tan Sri Mohd Khairul Adib Abd Rahman said the decision was made to ensure the services of agencies, ministries and departments would not be affected and that the public could still have access to them.
“The directive to work from home excludes those providing the delivery of essential services which is determined by the heads of departments in line with the government’s circular dated March 17, ” he said in a statement yesterday.
On Tuesday, employees at the management and supervisory levels in the private and public sectors in conditional MCO areas were told to work from home starting today.
Khairul Adib said heads of departments had been ordered to ensure all staff at the management and supervisory level of the ministries, agencies and departments, who were not needed full time, to be scheduled to work from home fully or on a rotation basis.
He also said meetings, discussions or training were to be done online during this time.
“Official secret documents are not allowed to be brought home throughout the period, ” he added.
However, he said department heads could give due consideration on the importance of the task, subject to standard operating procedure (SOP).
