A newly hired sewing operator called the Helpline for support in getting the wages due her after she was terminated. She was asked to leave the factory during the probationary period because she failed to meet the production target. When the caller asked for her payment, the supervisor refused.
According to labor law, management must pay the worker’s full salary, including overtime during the probationary period. The Helpline communicated with a senior manager at the factory who assured the Helpline officer that the worker would get paid. The Helpline confirmed that the worker received full payment due and the case was closed.
