Cambodia’s labour ministry clarifies rules for factory re-openings

The Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training has clarified that factories cannot force workers to be vaccinated in order for them to return to work.

Minister Ith Sam Heng said this in a statement on the payment of wages and reopening requirements for factories located in Yellow Zones in Phnom Penh and Takmao city, Kandal province.

The statement said any employee facing discrimination pertaining to their vaccination status can seek the ministry’s help via Telegram. In addition, the statement said 50% of wages due to employees for April as well as other benefits entitled to employees must be paid by May 14.

The General Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) has also published an advisory about the measures that must be in place for factories in Yellow Zones to re-open.
