Media Statement: UEM Edgenta Berhad
Full Release: Kuala Lumpur, 2 March – UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or “Company”) does not condone any form of discrimination, harassment or unethical practices towards its employees and abides by the mandatory requirements of the Employment Act 1955. This rule applies to all employment practices within the Company in which it employs over 20,000 people domestically and regionally.

In response to an article published by ‘The Vibes’ online news portal on 2 March 2021 titled “UEMS Edgenta appeals to get RM1,211 back from transgender cleaner”, the Company wishes to inform that it continues to explore ways to resolve this matter amicably with the employee highlighted in the article.

UEM Edgenta also wishes to state that the Company did not receive any enquiry from The Vibes to provide its comments in response to the allegations and shall avoid making any further public statements relating to this matter as it is currently subject to an appeal which will be heard before the High Court of Ipoh.

Based on initial findings in response to further allegations made in the published article on Edgenta UEMS discriminating against its employees’ activities at work, there has not been any complaint relating to the allegations, received by the management through any of the Company’s internal channels. Among the channels made available to all employees in its hospital support services business include ‘PrihatinLine’, an online platform which enables employees to communicate directly with Edgenta UEMS’ management, or via the Company’s whistleblowing channel.

Any further updates on this matter will be communicated through our website (www.uemedgenta.com).
