81% Cambodian factories following new wage plan: Govt
Eighty one per cent of garment and footwear factories in Cambodia have implemented the government’s new requirement to pay workers’ wages twice a month, the ministry of labour and vocational training recently announced. Terming that ‘acceptable’, ministry spokesman Heng Sour but said the government would penalise non-abiding enterprises.

According to the new law approved on September 21 last year, garment and shoe factories must pay workers’ wages in two instalments each month beginning this January. The first payment is to be made between the 16th and 19th of the month and the second one between the 1st and 7th of the month, according to Cambodian media reports.

The first payroll must be equal to half of the employee’s net wages per month, while the second ne must be equal to the remaining wages, including other benefits that employees receive each month.

The policy is intended to ease the financial strain low paid workers feel when they are waiting for their next paycheck at the end of each month.

Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC) president Ken Loo said most member factories pay their workers’ salaries twice a month. (DS)
