    THE SECURITIES COMMISSION'S GUIDELINES ON UNLISTED
    CAPITAL MARKET PRODUCTS UNDER THE LODGE AND LAUNCH FRAMEWORK*

    by
    HONG JAYEEN

    IN THIS ARTICLE, HONG JAYEEN LOOKS AT THE SECURITIES COMISSIONS’S NEW GUIDELINES ON UNLISTED CAPITAL MARKET PRODUCTS UNDER THE LODGE AND LAUNCH FRAMEWORK

    Introduction

    The Securities Commission (“SC”) had on 9 March 2015 issued the new Guidelines on Unlisted Capital Market Products under the Lodge and Launch Framework (the “New Guidelines”). The New Guidelines set out the requirements applicable to those who wish to make available unlisted capital market products to sophisticated investors in Malaysia.

    From 1 June 2015 (“Effective Date”), unlisted capital market products will no longer require the SC’s authorisation or recognition under section 212(5) of the Capital Markets Services Act 2007 (“Old Regime”) provided that all the applicable requirements under the New Guidelines have been complied with.[1]

    Unlisted capital market products include:

    REASONABLE ADJUSTMENT
    THE (DIS) ABILITY TO DISCRIMINATE LAWFULLY:
    "INHERENT REQUIREMENTS" AND UNJUSTIFIABLE ADJUSTMENT*

    by
    JOHN WILSON**

    “It takes an open-minded individual to look beyond a disability, and see, that ability has so much more to offer than the limitations society tries to place upon them.” Robert M. Hensel

     

    Injuries outside of work - whose responsibility?

    If an employee is injured in the course of their employment, the path forward is relatively clear: workers’ compensation legislation enacted across the Commonwealth and all its States and Territories provide a mechanism for the employees to be compensated, and a statutory program to manage their rehabilitation and return to work.

    The situation is different for an employee who becomes injured or acquires a disease in circumstances unrelated to their employment, and that injury or disease affects their ability to satisfactorily carry out their duties.

    What then is the employer obligated to do; where lies the legal tipping point on the balance beam between mandated compassion, and permitted self-interest?
