There are a lot of instances where supervisors wanted to deduct their subordinates’ salary for being late for work.
As per MOM, we can do so, but of course, we are not allowed to deduct more than the period he/she was late for.
I felt that such shall only apply for those who are constantly late for work, as there must be some sort of allowance for no one can be punctual every single day.
