THA Chief Secretary Hon. Kelvin Charles, announced that all outstanding gratuity will be paid to THA contract workers in this fiscal year.
Mr. Charles made this announcement at a press conference following the Executive Council’s Post Budget Retreat on Wednesday, 23rd October, 2019 at the Mount Irvine Bay Resort.
Mr. Charles said, “The process would involve auditing of those gratuities but contract workers also have a responsibility to liaise with the Inland Revenue Department. Once those things are clear and sufficiently audited, payments will be made.”
Mr. Charles added that contract workers who have left the service and are owed gratuity will also be paid, once due process is followed.
