Kelantan Holiday on 30th June 2013

The Kelantan State Government has declared 30th June 2013 as a public holiday in conjunction with the State soccer team’s qualification to the final of the Malaysian FA Cup final.

This public holiday is declared under s.9 of the Holidays Act therefore employers who observe ALL public holidays in their contract/handbook will have to observe this day as a compulsory holiday. For those who specifically list the holidays they observe in a year, then it is an option for the employer to choose whether or not this holiday should be observed.
