Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and Greetings.
Welcome to the Web Portal of the Industrial Court of Malaysia (ICM).
The Year 2020 forced our country to face major challenges as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
ICM too is not spared by this pandemic. The key function of the Industrial Court in hearing and disposing industrial disputes was affected to some degree. The cases fixed for hearing had to be deferred for almost 3 months following the Government’s announcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO). However, ICM is committed in facing the challenges due to the pandemic by embracing new norms in its work culture. Various initiatives had been put in place in line with this new norm to ensure the expeditious determination of matters before ICM such as the implementation of e-Mention and e-Hearing.
Cases referred by the Honourable Minister of Human Resources is projected to increase significantly by year ending 2020 and this trend is expected to continue in the year 2021 due to the likely increase in employees facing termination from employment as a result of this pandemic.
Despite the challenges, ICM will endeavour to provide its services to the best of its abilities to all parties. The continued co-operation from all parties and in particular from the stakeholders is greatly appreciated in ensuring the vision, mission and objectives of ICM is achieved.
