Govt to amend laws to ensure minimum standard for workers' accommodation

KUALA LUMPUR: The government intends to amend laws to include stricter provisions to ensure a minimum standard for workers' accommodation, similar to what was in the now-annulled Emergency Ordinance, says Datuk Seri M. Saravanan.

"The provisions under the annulled Emergency Ordinance will be included to proposed amendments to Act 446 (Employees' Minimum Standards of Housing, Accommodations and Amenities Act 1990)," the Human Resources Minister said during his ministerial reply on the motion to annual six Emergency Ordinances in Parliament on Monday (Oct 25).
