Following the announcement of True Group’s Malaysia closure, more than 50 former staff have filed complaints at the Labour Department after the fitness centre closed its operations, according to a report by Astro Awani.

In their statement, the employees said: “We are disappointed and saddened with the unethical and shameful way the company treated us. We were left in the lurch after the sudden closure of the company, leaving us jobless. Like any other Malaysians, we have our commitments to fulfill and it is unfair to us to be left in the dark like this.”

They added that they were not notified of the closure and only received a text from the management, thanking them for their service and asking them to not turn up to work anymore as their service is no longer required. “What is more shocking is the fact that we may not be receiving any sort of financial compensation due to us in accordance with the Malaysia Labour Law,” the staff shared.

The group is planning to lodge a police report over the unjust treatment and hope the HR ministry will offer a helping hand, according to Astro Awani.

In a statement to Human Resources, the True Group spokesperson has confirmed the payment of monies to ex staff: “With regards to our affected staff, funds for outstanding salaries are currently being arranged, with payments targeted to be released by next Monday (19 Jun 2017) through our lawyers.”
