Saravanan: Accommodation for over 90% of foreign workers in Malaysia not in compliance with Act 446

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 3): Some 91.1% or 1.4 million foreign workers in the country are provided with accommodation that does not comply with provisions under the Workers’ Minimum Standards of Housing and Amenities Act 1990 or Act 446.

Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M Saravanan said he found the statistics “very worrying”, especially with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

“The government had received applications for a certificate of accommodation for only 143,587 or 8.89% of the 1.6 million [registered] foreign workers in the country as of Oct 31.

“This situation clearly shows that employers and providers of centralised accommodation for the 1.4 million foreign workers in Malaysia still fail to apply for the certificate from the Department of Labour of Peninsular Malaysia (JTKSM),” he said.

He told reporters this at a special press conference here today, which was also attended by Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Silver Sands ‘eyesore’ set to make way for luxury accommodation, if Jan Cameron succeeds in Bicheno

A derelict hotel that has blighted a prime location at one of Tasmania’s prettiest east-coast towns is set to be knocked down and replaced with an eco-development that includes accommodation for penguins.

The Silver Sands hotel at Bicheno was bought by enigmatic Tasmanian millionaire and Kathmandu founder Jan Cameron in 2002 and to the frustration of locals, has crumbled slowly after closing its doors in 2015.

Glamorgan Spring Bay mayor Robert Young said it was quite a drawcard in the 1960s but is a long way from that now.

“People think it’s a bit of an eyesore having fences around it and collapsing down,”

200 relocated Andhra staff forced to find accommodation amid Covid

These employees relocated to Vijayawada on the insistence of the state government in 2017 from Hyderabad after almost three years post united AP bifurcation.

They were provided with free accommodation from July 2017 to July 2020, which now stands cancelled unless they pay for it.

“Seven of us stayed in a triple bedroom accommodation provided by the government. They took care of us well but the government now has told us to find our own accommodation,” an employee told IANS.

Incidentally, free accommodation ended for the employees four months ago in July itself, requiring interested employees to pay rent to stay on.

“For four months I paid Rs 5,500 and continued to stay from August to November end, only recently I found my own accommodation,” said the employee.

Rs 5,500 translates to Rs 37,500 when shared by seven employees in a three-bedroom accommodation in a place like Vijayawada.

DENVER (CBS4) – A policy change announced the Friday before Thanksgiving break has some teachers in Denver Public Schools considering taking a leave of absence, saying the change forces them to choose between their jobs or the safety of their families.

Austin ISD: No appeal process after teacher medical accommodation request denied

AUSTIN (KXAN) —Teachers are sounding off after medical accommodation requests to work from home are being denied for the spring semester in the Austin Independent School District.

“My doctor looked me in the face and said this is a disease you cannot get,” said Austin High School teacher Annie Dragoo, referring to COVID-19.

Dragoo submitted her medical accommodation request because she is dealing with multiple health issues.

“In addition to heart failure, and sarcoidosis and congestive heart failure, I’m battling cancer,” Dragoo said.

She never thought it would be denied, especially since her first accommodation was granted when school first moved to virtual sessions, but just like many other teachers, she was denied this time.

“When I got the letter, I was scared. I immediately broke into tears,” Dragoo said.

Dragoo took to social

Fears for Melbourne’s homeless forced out of Covid hotel accommodation | Housing

When Painter arrived at the Birches serviced apartments in East Melbourne, she breathed a sigh of relief.

“I’ve always said I just needed one person to treat me with a little bit of respect and I’ll flourish, and that’s what I’ve done here at Birches,” she said.

She is one of 2,000 rough sleepers in Victoria who were offered hotel accommodation during the pandemic – a program that has been heralded by service providers as extremely beneficial, and a possible road to ending rough sleeping once and for all.

Painter, who goes only by her last name, said she had been able to get off all drugs and, with the help of the hotel owner, Jenny Kerr, had begun painting and started to think about the future.

“Here I’m safe. S. A. F. E. It’s amazing what that one little thing will do, having a camera outside your room and

Plantation sector workers get good accommodation

PUTRAJAYA: Employers in the plantation sector get the thumbs up. But not manufacturing and construction companies.

Housing for workers provided by some companies in the manufacturing and construction sectors are found to be not conducive.

However, employers in the plantation sector got a pat on the back for providing good accommodation facilities for their workers.

This is the observation made by the Labour Department.

Its director-general Asri Ab Rahman described the living conditions of the workers in the two sectors as “far from satisfactory”.

While he did not reveal employers who failed to provide proper accommodation, Asri, however, named three companies which are providing good housing conditions for their workers.

Hartalega Holdings Bhd, he said, was exemplary in the glove manufacturing sector; Sime Darby Bhd in the plantation sector and Intel in the electrical and electronics sector.

These companies have been appointed as “industry champions” for other companies to emulate.
