Soehod, Khairiah (1984) Social security benefits under the employees' Social Security Act, 1969 / Khairiah Soehod. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Malaysia is a developing country. The development of the country is made through its dynamic five years plan. Industries become intensified due to this and the involvement and exposure of the workers to accidents in this field has increased to a higher degree. Thus, The Employees' Social Security Act, 1969 was enacted and enforced with the aim of producing monetary benefits to workers in cases of invalidity and employment injury. However, even though there are two scheme provided under the, Act - The Employment Injury Insurance Scheme and The Invalidity Pensron Scheme with various benefits thereunder, many dissatisfactions and complaints have been raised by the workers. Their greatest dissatisfaction lies in the low rate of benefits which from their view is inadequate to meet with the inflationary need. However, this provision is .unavoidable as the benefit is income-related. Another prevailing complaint is that most workers are still in favour of The Workmen's Compensation Ordinance, 1952 and are not very pleased with the decision of it" being replaced with The Employees1 Social Security Act 19^9 mainly because.- the former Ordinance permits the injured workers to sue their employer and the payment is made in lump sum. A comparison between the two legislations is made with the hope that the workers would be clarified on the reasons for taking such a step and would be, assured that The Employees' Social Security Act is their best reliance in the long-term.
