Labour firm ends fraud spat

CDM Trading Manpower Company agreed yesterday to a compromise with 42 workers who filed a complaint against the labour recruitment firm for alleged fraud and breach of trust.

The workers claimed that the company had taken their US$150 fee but failed to provide promised employment in Thailand and were seeking a full refund.

Ros Savin, chief of the anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection department in Kandal province, said the two sides had reached an agreement whereby those who now refused to accept employment would refunded their money, while those still seeking jobs would receive offers by the end of December.

“We are pleased that the argument between the workers and CDM Trading Manpower Company has ended,” Ros Savin said.
