Redundant workers drag employer to Labour Commission
The Sierra Leone Labour Commission (SLLC) is investigating the proprietor of Class Diving Company Limited for alleged illegal redundancies and backlog salaries between three and seven months.
Among the 60 redundant workers was the Supervisor, Jose Bavahaka, who was an expatriate in the company. Bavahaka, a national of Equatorial Guinea, was allegedly deprived of his seven months’ salaries, food and leave allowances.
The former Foreman, Lansana Daboh, claimed that the proprietor owes them three months backlog salaries and benefits.
He said they were however impressed with the decision of the Labour Commissioner, Information and Labour Officers instructing the proprietor Andrew Peter Hansen to furnish the Commission with names of the redundant workers entitled to leave and the clarification of salaries which the commission is already privy to.
The Information Officer of the Labour Ministry, Lansana Bayoh Sesay, said the mandate of the Commission is to always find amicable solutions to problems between employers and employees, noting that some discrepancies in the salaries aid to four workers were identified during the employer’s meeting with the Commissioner.
