PUTRAJAYA: Staff of all industries listed under the International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) can fully work at the office, as the government has agreed to cancel the 30% work from home policy involving management and supervisory personnel, says Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“This will take effect from April 1, ” he said on Tuesday (March 30).

Ismail Sabri also said the National Security Council special meeting had heard from the ministry which presented several justifications, including for the manufacturing sector.

It said the policy had posed difficulties in that sector because some operations could not be done remotely.

He said Miti also said that manufacturing operations involved processes that are complex and technical and require the presence of different teams comprising management and supervisory staff.

“The cancellation of this (30%) condition will allow companies to operate at maximum capacity," he added.

Ismail Sabri said for civil servants, the policy will be subject to a circular issued by the Public Service Department.
