YANGON – Myanmar’s Ministry of Labor, Immigration and Population has introduced a new social security mechanism which will allow workers whose factories have been closed since mid-April due to safety inspections to claim for 40 per cent of their salaries.

After the national Thingyan holiday which ended April 19, staff were unable to return to work as authorities undertook site inspections, ensuring factories provided adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) where needed and that they had adapted to encourage social distancing.  

Garment workers are now able to claim for 40 per cent of the salaries they had lost throughout this time, via a new government scheme brought in to provide financial relief.
