Almost a year after sending home a good number of its employees, Mediamax company is said to be scheduling another massive retrenchment, this time citing tough economic tides brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a notice spotted by zilizofichwa and which has been issued by the company’s CEO Ken Ngaruiya, the decision to lay off the staffers has been informed by the reduction in earnings since the advent of the corona pandemic.
“The services of some employees will be rendered superfluous thereby necessitating the termination of their employment on account of redundancy,” the statement partly reads.
Those so affected will have a month’s time notice or instead be paid a one-month salary.
The company has been in a tussle with workers seeing both of them meeting in court to resolve some of their burning issues. In April, Mediamax sought to cut pays of the workers due to low revenue flow thanks to the implications of the COVID-19 plague.
The employees could not stand the reduction in their pays seeking legal redress.
