Workers Who Traveled During New Year Holiday Face Two-Week Isolation

The Labor Ministry on Friday ordered workers who traveled to the provinces during the Khmer New Year holiday this week to isolate themselves for 14 days before returning to work in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the labor force.

Factory and other workers who took leave with permission from their employers will be paid the value of seven days of their salary during the isolation period, but those who did not receive permission will not be compensated for the two weeks, a ministry statement said.
