It has been almost two months that Malaysians persevered under the Movement Control Order (MCO) and now, the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO). Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that the CMCO is extended for another four weeks until June 9 – meaning that interstate movement to celebrate raya at kampung is not allowed.
However, some Malaysians managed to travel back hometown after violating the CMCO to celebrate raya. But, it won’t last long as those who are stuck in their hometowns can be terminated from their jobs.
Private sector employees who do not report for work on two consecutive days can be terminated from their jobs
According to the executive director of the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan said that private sector employees who stuck in their hometowns and cannot travel back to work can be terminated if they do not report for work on two consecutive days.
For civil servants, they will face disciplinary action
And for the civil servants who also violated the CMCO, Public Service Department director-general Datuk Mohd Khairul Adib Abd Rahmad said that they will face disciplinary action if they do not go back to work after Aidilfitri because they are stuck in their hometowns since no-interstate travel are allowed.
Those violating the CMCO could get penalty – disciplinary action or termination. If they want to go back to their jobs, they will be imposed a compound.
Senior Minister Security Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob also stated that they have to come back (to city) or face the risk of losing their jobs because they are afraid of the compounds. In whatever reason, they can’t run away as the roadblocks are still being held.
