Perkeso helps affected MYAirline staffThe Ministry of Human Resources (KSM), through its agency, the Social Security Organization (Perkeso), will help more than 500 MYAirline workers affected following the suspension of its operations since last Thursday.

Its minister, V Sivakumar, said his party was constantly monitoring the latest developments in the low-cost airline’s crisis. It is to ensure that the welfare of the workers was acted upon immediately.

According to him, affected and laid-off workers will receive income replacement for three to six months. All while they find a new career.

“The Job Search Allowance (EMP) benefits are given after a review of their Employment Insurance System (SIP) contribution records meet the eligibility requirements,” he said in a statement.

He said KSM will also help affected workers through upskilling according to individual needs.

“In fact, they will be informed about vacancies and new job placements through the national employment service portal MYFutureJobs.

“Help for affected workers also includes individual employment support services and career counseling by Perkeso employment service officers,” he said.

Recently MYAirline Sdn Bhd has temporarily stopped operating due to “severe financial challenges.”

The airline said it had explored all avenues for potential partnerships and capital-raising exercises to save the company.
