Director not backing down
DIRECTOR OF THE Barbados Vocational Training Board (BVTB), Henderson Thompson, yesterday admitted that Jasmine Valerie Payne was the only employee who was dismissed or otherwise disciplined between 2010 and 2013 for alleged failure to complete assigned tasks.
Thompson returned to the witness stand when the unfair dismissal case brought by Payne to the Employment Rights Tribunal continued.
It was earlier established that Payne depended on inputs from managers and department heads to complete the activities section of the BVTB’s annual reports and that she needed information from the audited accounts to add to the reports, which were unavailable.
Thompson told the panel, which is chaired by Omari Drakes and includes commissioners Dr Hartley Richards and Frederick Forde, that the audited accounts were the responsibility of the board’s accountant. (YB)
