News : Linden Call Centre closes, Sends Home 90 Without Severance Pay
Georgetown, Guyana, Sept 3, 2015 -- Linden call centre Toucan Connections Incorporated shut its doors recently and sent home 90 workers without paying severance.
This situation has attracted the attention of Minister in the Ministry of Social Protection Simona Broomes who led a team yesterday to the mining town to meet with officials and staff of the centre.
GINA said that Broomes advised the company that it has to pay severance. Moreover, an investigation has found that NIS contributions were not remitted to the Scheme and Broomes said that legal action will be taken against the company.
Toucan had been one of Linden’s major employers.
