A pregnant employee of an Aktobe-based oil company threatens to jump out of a window because she has not been paid any salary for months, Tengrinews reports.

Lines Jump LLP, the oil company, owes its employees over 20 million tenge ($107 thousand) in wages. According to the company, the delay in salary payments was caused by the crisis. In February, at the request of the Prosecutor’s office and in response to the claims filed by the employees, the local labor inspection conducted an investigation into the situation and fined the company. The company was supposed to pay the outstanding salaries to the employees by February 5, 2015 but failed to do so.

According to the 5-month pregnant employee, Lines Jump LLP oil company has not paid her and 40 other employees for seven month. Her colleagues even sent a letter to President Nazabrayev asking the government to interfere, but to no avail so far. They are also planning to visit the Akim (Mayor) of Aktobe Oblast to file more complaints.

Meanwhile, Kuanysh Amantayev of the Employment and Social Programs Department at the Aktobe Akimat (municipal authorities) reassured that the situation had been taken under control. According to Amantayev, the General Director of the oil company Vitaliy Li provided a guarantee letter. Li promised to pay the outstanding salaries by the end of the day.
