Three casinos in Poipet city have failed to disburse seniority payments to nearly one thousand employees who have worked with the establishments for up to six years, according to unionists.

According to Article 89 of the Labour Law, companies are required to pay its permanent workers seniority indemnity – or bonuses – depending on how long they have worked, once every six months.

It said workers with durational contracts are not eligible to receive seniority indemnity.

According to a Labour Ministry directive, companies are required to pay seniority after the beginning of 2019.
