MERSING: There are employers who have been detected hiding their employees’ Covid-19-positive status for fear of not being able to operate at full capacity, says Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan.
“I have given a warning to the manufacturing and construction companies.
“There are also positive cases but (employers) do not inform the Health Ministry for fear they will not be able to operate, ” he said after presenting donations to flood victims here yesterday.
Such an act, he said, was a bad practice by employers.
Earlier, Saravanan presented financial contributions amounting to RM120,000 from Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Bhd, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the Skills Development Fund Corp and Talent Corporation Malaysia Bhd to 320 victims affected by the floods in Mersing district. — Bernama
