SINGAPORE: A group of workers, including 13 Singaporeans, gathered at their security firm on Monday morning demanding for payment of their wages.

21 local and Malaysian workers accused Elk Security for failing to pay their wages on time as well as contribute to their CPF accounts.

Following discussions between the Manpower Ministry (MOM) and the firm, all parties agreed that the November salaries will be paid on December 11.

MOM said there was a delay in the payment of the workers’ salary for the month of November as the company director was overseas and the cheques could not be issued on time.

The ministry will also be investigating the employers for possible offences under the Employment Act.
