Extra maternity leave may be problematic, says PSD chief
PUTRAJAYA: The Government has to check on Selangor’s decision to allow for a maximum of 90 days of maternity leave for civil servants in the state.
Public Service Department director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam cautioned there might be legal implications in pension payments arising from the decision.
Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim also announced that husbands would enjoy a 14-day paternity leave, up from a week previously. Female staff whose husbands die will also get 30 days’ leave, compared to three days of emergency leave previously.
Cuepacs president Omar Osman, when contacted, welcomed Selangor’s move, saying it was in line with International Labour Organisation’s requirements.
“We hope the Federal Government will also follow suit and increase maternity leave nationwide to 84 days or 90 days,” he said.
Omar said the government’s decision to slash the number of leave days to 25 for those joining the civil service from Jan 1 regardless of their tenure had affected women.
“The previous entitlement of 60 days’ leave may be enough for some people but there are mothers who need extra days to attend to a sick child or emergency matters,” he said.
He said the Government had agreed to increase maternity leave for civil servants to 84 days when Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil was the Women, Family and Community Development Minister.

Yeah, Malaysian politics is very interesting. And I will not try to disengage with all these happening moments anymore.

Tend to black your eyes
Just keep them closed
Just keep waiting
Wow... black eyes was very politically related to Malaysian politic back in 1998-99 political turmoil. So what was the message? I've called this group after a long time haven't had any conversation after the Load, Reload and Garage Inc which were upset most of their fans. But Ulrich replied to me to refer his interview with the mtv.com about the song and video which he claimed not a political statement.

What on earth man loves women and getting married without the sex as a translation... yes your are honest with what you are doing but it is a spiritual need... 'People wonder why asexuals bother to get together, but Amanda and I have been happily married for nine months now and we're both still virgins. Some people even think asexuality doesn't exist. It's so underrepresented, I can understand why people are skeptical. I was too, even though I was perfectly used to thinking of myself in this way. For years I just thought I was the only person in the world who felt like this'. Nonsense!!
