Employers are allowed to continue receiving financial assistance and other benefit from the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) even though they have arrears of levy and unpaid interest as stated under Section 20(6A) in the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act, 2001.
The amount of arrears of levy and/or unpaid interest will be offset with the amount of training grant claims that is approved for payment.
Under the procedure, not only the employers’ training grant claims are reimbursed but their arrears of levy and/or unpaid interest will also be gradually paid-off or reduced. The total amount of financial assistance eligible to be received by employers is still, however, subject to the balance in their levy accounts. In the event the amount of levy in employers’ accounts is insufficient, the amount of training grants disbursed will be equivalent to the balance in employers’ accounts (partial payment). The remaining training grants will be reimbursed when employers have accumulated sufficient levy in their accounts. If the balance of levy in employers’ accounts is less than the amount of training grant claims approved for payment, no arrears of levy and unpaid interest will be offset and the claim will be rejected.
If employers with arrears of levy and unpaid interest fail to submit any form of written application upon the submission of their training grant claims, the claims will be rejected.
