Let us celebrate the achievement of Industrial Court Malaysia (ICM), Ministry of Human Resources with gratefulness. The ICM has seen tremendous progress with establishement of the 10 Task Force Courts and 8 Digital Recording System pursuant to the ICM Transformation Plan to improve the Court's efficiency and performance.
This year will continue to be challenging for ICM and the relevant stakeholders. The full implementation of the e-filing and e-service system commencing 1 January 2019 will enable parties to utilise the facility regardless of time and place, thus making the handling of cases simple, speedier and effective.
Pursuant to the 2019 Budget Speech (Strategy 5: Improving Employment & Employability), the Government will expedite the resolution of industrial disputes between employers and employees by setting up an Industrial Appeal Court.
The ICM will move forward to achieve greater heights in promoting industry harmony and dispensing social justice.
