They clarified that it was a misunderstanding, and that no worker’s commission would be deducted. Instead, there was confusion over the year-end bonuses that led to the feeling of disgruntlement.

Accoring to J&T Express, workers who have been with the company for a full year or more received a full bonus, while those who worked for less than a year received a bonus according to their length of employment. However, this difference caused some confusion among the workers which led to dissatisfaction.

However, their Perak management team has handled and clarified the incident immediately. The workers involved resumed their normal working status with the proper handling of customer’s packages the next day, on February 5th.

Additionally, J&T Express addressed certain complaints of their workers stealing food and drinks from their delivery packages.

The company clarified that because of the increased amount of packages, they had to hire more temporary workers. These temporary workers were only provided a simple training. J&T Express acknowledged that this was a fault in their management.

J&T Express promised to bear all responsibilities and improve their services.
