HRDF is taking the relevant pro-active measures to cushion the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on registered employers, their local workforce and Malaysians in general by encouraging them to “adapt and grow” in this current state by increasing up-skilling and re-skilling efforts.
HRDF registered employers from 63 sub-sectors are exempted from paying the mandatory Human Resources Development (HRD) levy under the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act 2001 (Act 612) for six (6) months.
The implementation of levy exemption is to support over 30,000 of the Fund’s registered employers during this difficult period. The levy exemption will come into effect from 15 April 2020 to 15 September 2020
