Time for action on unfair employers

Thursday July 12, 2018 Published in Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I have come across some information regarding a company on the island that is being very unfair towards its employees.

 

These employees are being yelled at on a regular basis for little problems that could easily be solved without any need for nastiness, and some are terminated for no reason at all. To make things worse, it is mainly the female employees who are being targeted.

A person with a high role within in this company has previously faced two charges of fighting, once with a customer and another time with an ex-employee who had been “terminated”, as they say. As it happened, that employee had already quit.

On both occasions the fights happened at the office.

Within the last year or so two female employees have been terminated, for less than what the male employee did.

We wonder why many employers bring foreigners to work here.

I believe it could be because the locals get mistreated by their bosses for the hard work they do. Too often, they get spoken down to and to make matters even worse, in many cases it is our own treating our own like this.

So what can those people do when we are mistreated in such a way?

Is there help out there for these situations?

Come on government look at this issue please as this is really serious!

We desperately need equal rights between the sexes.
