By now, (02.04.2020), most company already paid the salary for March 2020.

Even though in FAQ2, MOHR said Employer must pay full salary, we believe there are some company not paying full salary. We run a survey this week, about 3/4 of employees will get full salary in March 2020 (including 18.03.2020 to 31.03.2020) but in the same survey, more people are expecting unpaid leave/annual leave for 01.04.2020 to 14.04.2020.

This is in line with FAQ3 as Employer are expected to pay full salary but can 'negotiate with employee' to get the #Consent for pay-cut or unpaid leave or annual leave.

Hence, we recommend such a letter for Employee to give their consent.
