PUTRAJAYA: The work from home order for areas under the conditional MCO is still in place, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said for other states, the National Security Council (NSC) would discuss with the Public Service Department director-general as well as with the International Trade and Industry Ministry to get the latest decision.

“I was informed that the work from home policy remains for areas under the conditional MCO as there are still red zones in these states.

“As for other states (under the recovery MCO), we will let NSC discuss with the relevant authorities, ” he said on Wednesday (Dec 9).

The government had imposed the work from home order for those employed in the management and supervisory posts in both public and private sectors beginning Oct 22.

The private sector involved in the policy are industries that are under the MITI’s list.

The order was imposed for Selangor, Sabah, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan and involved 800,000 workers in various industries as well as close to 200,999 civil servants.
