Some employees of the Caribbean Call Center in Dominica have written to the Labour Commissioner as a final resort to complain of unfair working conditions at the establishment.
In the letter dated June 10th 2016, the employees highlighted what they describe as unfair and unfortunate working conditions and incidents they are faced with at that institution.
Among the areas of concern are nonpayment of salaries, nonpayment of social security deductions and poor equipment at the center.
The letter reads "... We have been employed by the above mentioned company commencing within the date range of April 21st 2016 till present at the time of writing this letter. We have signed working contracts on said date to legalize the employment. Unfortunately 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 stated further that management has also failed to maintain their end of the contractual agreement of $450 EC a fortnight. The company has since ceased operations and informed staff via email on June 8th 2016 that this was due to financial issues but advised employees to return to work today Tuesday June 14th 2016.
However, employees confirmed that there was a no show from management.
One employee spoke to Q95's Mathias Peltier Tuesday.
