Former Dreamland employees – who threatened to strike on Monday – and representatives of the recently closed Phnom Penh amusement park yesterday reached a compromise over outstanding entitlements.
Chan Thorn, who had worked at the amusement park since 2011 and was present at a meeting yesterday, said the employees were satisfied with the offer.
“The problem has come to an end since both sides understand one another,” said Thorn, who was to receive a $200 payout.
Dreamland representative Chhor Vion said the offer the company made was based on the Labour Law.
Employees who had worked at the park for five years were offered $200; four years $170; three years $150; two years $120; one year $85 and less than a year $45.
The company would begin to disburse the compensation to the 99 former workers early next week, Vion said.
The company closed the park last month when its lease expired. The site’s owner has released plans for a 133-storey twin-towered commercial building.
