Datuk Thavalingam Thavarajah, Employment and Industrial Relations Lawyer

The establishment of the Gig Economy Commission Malaysia (SeGim), initially mooted by Prime Minister Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, has now been shelved. It was intended to ensure the welfare of gig workers across the entire economic chain. Datuk Thavalingam Thavarajah, an Employment and Industrial Relations Lawyer and an author of several publications on labour laws, analyses the argument that SeGim would have been doing roles already taken up by other bodies for the same purpose.
