200 LIME workers get walking papers
More than 200 workers at telecommunications company LIME have been informed that September 30 will be their last day of work.
The WEEKEND NATION understands that in addition to the 200 employees from the service support and delivery and associated customer support teams who will be going home as a result of a deal with global provider Ericsson, 12 others from various departments have been given their walking papers as the company looks to either outsource their jobs or make their positions redundant.
In notices of termination issued earlier this month and signed by Head of Human Resources Stephanie Catling-Birmingham, LIME told the employees hat consequent to the reorganization of the service support and delivery function, their roles were being made redundant.
LIME outlined to the employees how severance payment would be calculated – one month’s pay for each year of continuous employment, three months’ pay in lieu of notice, and a training grant equivalent to one month’s gross basic salary.
