Let us celebrate the achievement of Industrial Court Malaysia (ICM), Ministry of Human Resources with gratefulness. The ICM has seen tremendous progress with the establishment of 10 Task Force courts and the introduction of Digital Recording System in 8 courts 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-services system commencing 1 January 2019 will enable parties to utilise the facility regardless of time and place, thus making the handling of cases simpler, speedier and more effective.
Pursuant to the 2019 Budget Speech (Strategy 5: Improving Employment and Employability), the Government will expedite the resolution of industrial dispute between employees and employers by setting up the Industrial Appeal Court.
The ICM will move forward to achieve greater heights in promoting industrial harmony and dispensing social justice.
