Minister of Labour and Vocational Training Ith Sam Heng released a notification pertaining to the payment of wages and reopening requirements for factories located in Yellow Zones in Phnom Penh and Takmao city, Kandal province.
In a letter, Sam Heng said factories must not require workers to be vaccinated to return to work.
If cases of non-vaccination are discovered, they will be investigated by the labour inspector of the ministry, the notice added. Any employees facing discrimination concerning their vaccination status should report the issue via Telegram by sending a message to @KhmerWorker, the notice said.
The minister’s letter noted the ministry urging landlords of rental houses to reduce, remove or delay the payment of rental fees “according to your ability in the spirit of humanity and solidarity in this time”.
