Don’t every take maids from this thuggish agent – Agensi Pekerjaan PMA. Supplied me with an incompetent maid from day 1 with mental health issue & severe absent-mindedness with no prior housemaid experience at all, contrary to maid’s biodata – clearly a misrepresentation. Before my tribunal hearing, received annoymous threatening calls from strangers & upon court award, the lady boss threatened to quash the award by bringing to the high court. A real thug!

There was a case in this forum where the maid agency lost at the tribunal and filed for Judicial Review at the High Court.
We guided the person against the agency's lawyer at the High Court and she won again.

Dear all,

This is for public awareness so others do not fall victim to unscrupulous maid agencies & the challenges involving non-compliance of court awards.

Agensi Pekerjaan PMA (Penang HQ with branches in Alor Setar, Puchong & Cheras) has committed criminal offense of not abiding in MORE THAN ONE award handed down by the Tribunal Court.

I had my court hearing with PMA on 4th September 2014. Thanks to social media, I came to know of a lady in the same dilemma as me. In both hearings, the judge has awarded us monetary refund due to misrepresentation & incompetent maids who ran away just weeks into their employment.

PMA has not only defied the 14 days deadline to pay the award but has ignored appointments fixed by the Ministry of Trade & Consumerism enforcement officers to investigate their non-compliance. This has been dragging on in the past 6 months.

We are at our wits end. To date, we have served PMA through our lawyer the Notice 218 which gives them a 21 days deadline. They blatantly ignored this too!!

I just want JUSTICE!!! Any advise or suggestions is greatly appreciated!
