Forced Labour and Trafficking

Exploited Nepali workers receive compensation in Malaysia

70 Nepali workers who have been working since 2 years in Satochemifa Berhad, Shah Alam in Selangor received compensation in Malaysia with GEFONT Support.

70 Nepali workers who went Malaysia before 2 years through Himalayan Job Explore Pvt.Ltd Baneswor, Kathmandu, Nepal had been receiving salary much less than the Agreement. The company Sato Chemifa Berhad, Selangor had been providing RM 450 instead of RM 750 as stated in the contract.

Workers informed the GEFONT Support Group (GSG) Malaysia. The GSG started to take the action and contacted the Local Trade Union of Malaysia MTUC, the Kathmandu Labour Department as well as the Nepali Embassy of Kuala Lumpur.
The management of the Company had already decided to close the company and send the Nepali workers back without the agreed salary. The GEFONT Support Group warned the management that if the agreed salaries were not paid, they would start legal proceedings.

Due to the continuous efforts of GEFONT Support Group and the Malaysia trade unions, the company was forced to give salary according to the contract from the day one and assisted the workers to return back to Nepal.
