HRDF meets Kula to tackle abuse of funds allegation
KUALA LUMPUR: The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) takes all allegations against it seriously and pledges its full cooperation to the Human Resources Ministry and relevant authorities.
In a statement here yesterday, HRDF said it was aware of the allegations made on social media regarding the misappropriation of funds, with the allegations appearing in the mainstream media as well.
“Due to such allegations, a town hall meeting was called on June 7, where HRDF registered training providers met and voiced their concerns to Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran.
“As a result, the minister has committed to set up an independent panel to look into the matters raised as part of efforts to promote transparency and accountability.”
HRDF said it would continue to adhere to the principles of good governance and wished to clarify its position, clear the allegations, as well as encourage comments to be sent to official channels for measures to be taken.
“We assure levy contributors that their funds are secure and they can continue to utilise their contribution for the upskilling, reskilling and multiskilling of their employees, apprentices and trainees.”
