Former Employees of Radio Port Harcourt Issues 48-hr ultimatum for payments of their entitlementsFeatured, Latest News, News From The State Friday, September 11th, 2015
Some former employees of Radio Port Harcourt have issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the management of 91.7 Radio Port Harcourt for the payment of their outstanding salaries, pension fund and leave bonuses.
The former employees, who left the company over a year ago, are being owed salaries and other entitlements ranging from four to eight months.
Having waited for so long without the company calling to negotiate their payments, sought the services of a lawyer to get their entitlements.
Counsel to the former employees of Radio Port Harcourt, Monima Karibi-Whyte, Esq., Managing Solicitor of Coronation Chambers, in a signed letter to the management of the company, dated 11th September 2015, noted that the said employees despite carrying out their duties diligently, the company failed to play its own part by paying their salaries as at when due.
The letter further noted that the situation led to his clients’ inability to perform their domestic, personal and social obligations.
This situation unfortunately forced the former employees to resign from the company as it became very unbearable.
The letter, entitled: COMPLAINT AGAINST REFUSAL TO PAY OUTSTANDING SALARY AND ALLOWANCE OWED……(THE CONCERNED STAFF), also revealed various losses suffered by the former employees as a result of the non payment of their salaries and other entitlements.
Karibi Whyte Esq., in the letter warned that failure to comply with the request will lead to legal proceedings against the company in addition to activating all lawful process with the relevant government agencies.
