KUCHING: Late payment of wages tops the list of complaints received by the state Labour Department. 

Its director Tan Gek Hua said the department received all sorts of complaints, mostly related to wages, almost daily from employees. 

“In most cases, employers delayed paying their employees because of cash flow problems,” she said at the department’s Clients’ Day and job fair at the exhibition centre at Taman Kereta here. 

More than 45 companies took part in the two-day fair, offering various jobs from unskilled work to engineering. 

The event was jointly organised by the department and agencies under the Human Resources Ministry.  

Tan said the department investigated all the complaints. 

She said the department’s officers were inspecting workplaces to check conditions of employment and holding discussions with employers on their responsibilities.
