Mrs Dan, head of the wages division under the Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social affairs said companies must clearly announce the wages, bonuses, allowances as well as the exact time period that these will be made to employees. In case any delay arises, employees, grass root trade unions and local authorities must be informed well in time.
According to Mrs. Dan, companies are required to declare their bonus plans well ahead of the New Year so as to rest the minds of their employees and prevent dissatisfaction and labor unrest towards the year end.
