Supermarts under Labour Dept watch
Published on: Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Kota Kinabalu: Two inspection papers were opened and nine notices of compliance issued by the Sabah Labour Department to supermarket and mini-market operators as part of its exercise to enforce labour laws in the State.

Its enforcement division inspected a total of 40 supermarkets and mini-markets premises in the second OPS Patuh currently ongoing throughout Sabah.

The notice of compliance was to give the employers a chance for corrective action, failing which may cause them to face legal action, the department said in a statement.

It said that it is continuously enforcing OPS Patuh throughout Sabah, focusing on supermarkets and mini-markets. The operation is one of the department's initiative and proactive effort to further enforce labour laws via regular monitoring and enforcement.

"This is to ensure employers in supermarkets and mini-markets to carry out their responsibility for their employees' welfare," it said.


The department added that this is not only to protect the rights of the employees but to raise awareness and further educate employers on labour laws in Sabah and establish harmonious industry and induce loyalty among employees.

On another development, the Kota Kinabalu Magistrate Court on Tuesday fined a mobile phone retailer RM1,800 or one month's jail for failing to comply with Minimum Wage Order 2016.
