30 PKNS Holdings employees dismissed on 24 hours notice


(Bernama) – Nearly 30 employees of Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS) Holdings Sdn Bhd (PHSB) were today dismissed by the management company with 24 hours notice effective yesterday.

It is understood that all the 30 employees of PHSB, which is a subsidiary of PKNS, received their dismissal letters during a meeting with the management this morning after coming to work as usual.

The letters were personally signed by PHSB chairman, Datin Paduka Norazlina Zakaria.

Dr Alif Aiman, who spoke on behalf of the dismissed employees said they were shocked by the development as there had not been any discussions prior to their dismissal.

“The shock that we got when attending work today is akin to persecution as there is no sound reason for the termination which is a real hardship for us, being the families’ main breadwinners.

“What we regret is even now we all still do not know why we have been dismissed when we have not committed any offence against PHSB for which we were willing to sacrifice time and energy to develop,” he told reporters here today.

Dr Alif, who is also the Senior Marketing Manager of PKNS, said they were only informed through the letter of termination that the move was made in accordance to changes and direction taken by PKNS in restructuring the organisation and human resources, including in PHSB.
