Abstract

Employment laws in Malaysia have long disfavoured employees and this is again highlighted following the passing of a law to rescue the Malaysian national flag carrier Malausin Airlines. This article concludes that employees' (as well as other stakeholders') interests remain subordinated to the interests of shareholders as well as larger national interests.
