PETALING JAYA: Following the closure of schools nationwide, the work-from-home policy for the public and industry sectors has been extended to all states, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Defence Minister said that for the public sector, the maximum attendance for offices was 30%, with the heads of department determining who would be required to go in.

He said for the industrial sectors, the international trade and industry ministry would announce additional information on the policy.

“However, the work from home policy will not involve informal sectors such as retail, restaurants, plantations, farming, fishing, and others, ” he said in a press conference on Tuesday (Nov 11).

Ismail Sabri said the government came up with the decision following the closure of schools and daycare centres nationwide until the end of the year which left parents with children in a difficult situation.
