CEO: Workers were disciplined

The employees involved in the attacks are no longer working at the respective buildings, said Ascendas Services (Singapore) CEO Jeffrey Chua.

Replying to The New Paper's queries, he said Ascendas had been notified and was aware of the two incidents involving the employees of A@risco Services and those of GCM Safety & Security and CSS Services on May 8 and Dec 31 last year.

All three companies were contracted by Ascendas, a property management firm, to maintain and work at the buildings managed by Ascendas.

Said Mr Chua: "Ascendas takes a serious view on the compliance of all manpower regulations and contractual agreements by our vendors and contractors.

"Following the incidents, Ascendas has issued warning letters to the companies involved and implemented a financial penalty as the misconduct of their employees was deemed as non-compliance of their contractual obligations."

The companies involved have also made police reports and disciplinary action was taken by the respective companies against the employees involved, he said.
