Workers in that category “have been requested to present themselves and inform the company if they wish to continue working,” Mr. Loo said, adding that they have not been officially dismissed, contradicting reports from the Free Trade Union that all the workers were fired without benefits. “If they no longer wish to continue working, the company will then calculate all relevant wages and benefits due to them under the law,” Loo said..
