One thought on “About the Founder

  1. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Raffles Education Corp Singapore has incurred another significant liability in it’s now idle Vietnam schools. It is currently being sued in Hanoi city court for illegally terminating lecturer contracts, fraudulently representing itself as a college in its faculty recruitment, and failing to provide medical insurance for its faculty per contract and per Vietnamese Labor law. Raffles Hanoi management has turned up its nose at attempts to negotiate and now the matter is in the hands of the court. The attitude of the Vietnamese government and the general public has continued to be anti Raffles due to its operating illegally and its imperious attitude towards the respected Ministry of Education. Raffles’ mad publicity driven scramble to try to appease the former students (who were misled into thinking Raffles was a verified college rather than a trade school) by offering transfers has been a failure and caused great resentment among parents. The tone of the government is punitive. The insider word in government circles is that Raffles will be lucky to just have to pay out the rest of all the contesting lecturer’s contracts with penalties to the maximum allowable under Vietnamese law. The court can order additional payments for hardship and suffering. This exposure of Raffles archaic and regressive HR policies should negatively affect value and accelerate the further rapid decline of corporate stock price.
