    PROCEDURAL FLOW FOR WRONGFUL DISMISSAL SETTLEMENT IN MALAYSIA -
    A PRACTICAL APPROACH

    by
    LEE SOOK LING*
    HASSIM, JADY ZAIDI**

    Introduction

    Industrial dismissal is certainly devastating and disastrous for workers who have lost their main source of livelihood. The Malaysian community is constantly faced with employment and industrial relations issues and occurrences of wrongful dismissal disputes are inevitable. Therefore, the procedure to resolve dismissal disputes is essential to safeguard the wrongfully dismissed workers and provide the justice they rightfully deserve.

    This paper aims to illustrate, from a practical aspect, the procedural flow to deal with wrongful dismissal disputes in Malaysia. This may serve as a how-to guideline to the Malaysian community, especially the dismissed workers, on what to do, when and where to file their complaint if they have been dismissed in an unjustified manner.

    PENGGUNAAN ANJING PENGESAN DALAM SIASATAN
    by

    Abstrak

    Anjing telah digunakan dalam siasatan jenayah sejak berkurun lamanya. Anjing menggunakan deria bau untuk membantu agensi penguatkuasaan undang-undang untuk mengecam penjenayah dan pelaku. Anjing yang digunakan untuk mengesan penjenayah dikenali sebagai anjing pengesan. Kebanyakan bidang kuasa di seluruh dunia menggunakan anjing pengesan sebagai alat untuk menyiasat jenayah. Malaysia juga menggunakan anjing pengesan dalam penyiasatan jenayah. Keterangan yang diperoleh melalui penggunaan anjing pengesan dikenali sebagai keterangan anjing pengesan. Walau bagaimanapun, kedudukan keterangan anjing pengesan di Malaysia tidak jelas dan kabur kerana tidak ada peruntukan langsung atau keputusan tentang kebolehterimaan keterangan anjing pengesan. Sehingga kini, tiada keterangan yang dikemukakan sebagai keterangan anjing pengesan di mahkamah Malaysia dan tiada kes yang membuat keputusan tentang perkara ini. Artikel ini bertujuan membincangkan ketepatan pengesanan oleh anjing pengesan dan kebolehpercayaannya dari sudut saintifik. Selain itu, artikel ini juga membincangkan elemen-elemen yang mempengaruhi kebolehterimaan keterangan anjing pengesan. Artikel ini mendapati bahawa keterangan anjing pengesan adalah sangat bernilai dalam sesuatu siasatan dan boleh membantu mahkamah dalam membuat keputusan.

    Kata kunci: anjing pengesan; kebolehpercayaan; keterangan; siasatan

    INCORPORATION OF AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
    by

    A case commentary on Juaramedic Sdn Bhd v. MRCB Engineering Sdn Bhd [2017] 1 LNS 624, [2017] 3 AMR 793.

    The law on stay pending arbitration is continuing to be developed in Malaysia with a consistent approach taken by the Malaysian Courts in leaning towards being arbitration friendly. The current case of Juaramedic Sdn Bhd v. MRCB Engineering Sdn Bhd [2017] 1 LNS 624, [2017] 3 AMR 793 is a prime example of this.

    Brief Facts of the Case:

    The respondent ("the defendant") is a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad ("MRCB") which had entered into a formal agreement dated November 18, 2010 ("the Main Agreement") with the government via Jabatan Kerja Raya ("JKR") subsequent to the government's acceptance of the defendant's proposal for upgrading and repair works at the Sabah Medical Centre-Queen Elizabeth Hospital II ("the project"). By way of a separate agreement dated October 30, 2010 ("the Procurement Agreement") the plaintiff was appointed by the defendant to procure, supply, install and commission medical and non-medical equipment for the project.
