Key Briefs & Reports: Complaints

The Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA) has filed a labor complaint on August 6, 2009, on behalf of 11 of the 15 workers that were trafficked to Malaysia by Vietnamese state-owned labor export companies to work for Sony. Additionally, the labor officer has issued a letter to request that Sony refrain from sending the workers back to Vietnam.

On August 7, 2009, the CAMSA office in Penang, Malaysia filed a labor complaint on behalf of the remaining 4 workers in the Sony case. Both complaints were filed against JR Holdings, the Malaysian labor supply company that placed the workers with Sony.

This will prevent JR Holdings from sending the workers back to Vietnam and gives CAMSA and its team the opportunity to file suit against JR Holdings to secure the back-wages that they deserve and to press the Malaysian government for criminal investigation of the case.
