Advisory on Business Continuity Plan in Preparation for Omicron Wave

Employers are likely to see fluctuating, short-term manpower shortages, which may spike if there is workplace transmission

Employers and employees should continue to overcome manpower challenges together, while protecting the health and safety of all at the workplace

Employees should not turn up for work if they feel unwell

Members of public can support businesses by being more understanding if there is an unavoidable service disruption

Cost Sharing of Stay-Home Notice (SHN) and related COVID-19 tests between employers of transfer non-Malaysian Work Permit Holders (WPHs)
Current employers of non-Malaysian WPHs can arrange for SHN and related COVID-19 tests to be shared with subsequent employers, if the worker is transferred to another employer within 12 months from completion of SHN.
MOM has also issued guidelines recommending that employers bear the costs proportionate to the workers’ duration of employment within the 12-month period.
  Employers may also mutually determine the apportionment of costs, subject to the following criteria:
• The current employer does not receive more than what was paid for the costs of SHN and related COVID-19 tests
• Both employers sign a written agreement on the amount of costs shared, and the agreement is to be retained by both employers for one year from the agreement date
