Is EIS mandatory in Malaysia?

Yes. EIS is compulsory and not optional in Malaysia (Except for those stated below).

Any employer who fails to comply with EIS would result in a fine of RM 10,000 and /or imprisonment for not more than 2 years upon conviction. It is an insurance system to ensure job security for Malaysian citizens.


A simple rule to remember:

If you are paying your employees SOCSO, you will need to pay your employees EIS.

Both fall under the same category in terms of contribution eligibility.
