There were allegations about the deduction of employee wages, but J&T released a statement to apologize on behalf of their employees’ behaviour and also clarified that they are continuously trying to improve employee compensations and benefits. “J&T has given employees year-end bonuses after comprehensive consideration, in accordance with the bonus rules and regulations, and in accordance with the Malaysian Labour Law, full bonuses are paid to employees who have worked for a year.”

“For employees who have worked for less than a year, bonuses are paid according to the length of working time without prejudice. Unfortunately, certain employees are not clear about the bonus payment scheme which led to violent sorting of packages on 4 February, inciting some employees to make collective disturbances, and posting the videos to social media.”

J&T also addressed that they will not be deducting or owing their employees wages. On another note, the company is also open to having supervision and inspection by the public and institutions.
