No worker will lose job if fails to join on time: Farhad Hossain
State Minister for the Ministry of Public Administration Farhad Hossain

State Minister for the Ministry of Public Administration Farhad Hossain on Saturday said that the workers of the export-oriented factories will not lose their job if they could not attend their duties on August 1.

Leaders of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) have also assured that no worker will be sacked if he or she cannot join their factories on August 1.

State Minister for Labour and Employment Begum Monnujan Sufian has also urged the factory owners not to terminate any worker if he or she cannot join on time.

Although the movement of public transport has remained suspended due to ongoing strict lockdown, thousands of RMG workers have started returning to Dhaka facing huge sufferings and ignoring health guidelines as the factories are set to reopen on Sunday (Aug 1).
