Clear Harbor distances itself from Caribbean Call Center as company becomes embroiled in controversy
One Call Center here is distancing itself from the Caribbean Call Center after the company became embroiled in controversy with its employees this week.
Clear Harbor, the largest private sector company here, in a release issued Tuesday, said it is in no way affiliated with the Caribbean Call Center.
" The management of Clear Harbor would like to inform the general public that our company is in no way affiliated with Caribbean Call Center, the outfit currently making headlines locally for alleged non-payment of salaries to its employees,” it said in the release.
It continued, “Our reputation in the Commonwealth of Dominica, the Caribbean region and internationally as a company which meets its financial obligations to its employees is solid, and we intend to maintain it. That track record, especially in Dominica remains unblemished since we first started operations in the Nature Island in 2005 and it explains, in part, why we remain the largest private sector company in the Commonwealth of Dominica with just over 800 employees.”
On Tuesday, employees of the Caribbean Call Center took the media to voice their concerns of unfair working conditions at the establishment.
Last Friday, they wrote to the Labour Commissioner as a final resort to have their concerns addressed. "...we feel that we are being exploited and unfairly treated hence we are writing this letter as a means to take action in accordance with the Labor laws of the commonwealth of Dominica." they said in the letter.
