Cambodian workers seeking severance pay from clothing factory owner


More than 600 workers at Phnom Penh’s Bodykids Fashion Wear factory will receive the wages owed them from February after the previous owner left without paying employees, although they are still demanding severance pay.

Huy Sambath, president of the Cambodian Workers Union Federation, said the new owner of the factory agreed to pay the 620 workers their owed wages after he filed a complaint with local authorities asking for intervention, reports the Phnom Penh Post.
