GCNET ready to pay redundancy compensation


The management of Ghana Community Network Services Limited (GCNet) says it is prepared to pay redundancy compensation to its laid-off workers in accordance with legal processes.

According to the management, it is challenging the arbitral award by a panel of the National Labour Commission (NLC) not because the company wants to deny the workers compensation, but it wants to ensure that the right procedures are followed in line with the Labour Act.

Bearing in mind that the bill for redundancy compensation payment will have to be submitted to government for a refund as the result of abrogating its trade services contract with GCNet, the compensation has to be properly negotiated and administered, the company says.
