We know quite a lot about the “Team A” law suit brought against Shell in Malaysia. That case involves a group of 399 former Shell employees. Their action relates to deductions made by Shell to their Employee Providence Fund. A Judge has already ruled that the deductions were “unlawful”.
Shell has appealed the decision apparently in an attempt to exploit a legal loophole relating to time limits. This appears to be a ploy by Shell to evade its moral responsibilities to its former employees. The case has dragged on for years and in the meantime, members of the Team A group are elderly, sick, and dying.
We know little about the case brought against Shell by another group of Shell employees known as “Team B”. Consequently if you are a member of that group we would be grateful for some background information. When did your action commence? how many employees are concerned? Are they all former Shell employees or are any current employees involved. Is the basis of the claim similar to the claim brought by Team A? At what stage is the litigation? Is Shell also dragging out your case and are any members of the group in a similar plight to some members of Team A?
If you wish to supply information without your name being published that is perfectly okay.
