“The Media Association of Solomon Islands (MASI) is concerned about the rising dismissal of workers in the media industry.
“While the impact of COVID-19 has greatly affected the media industry, MASI says there is no reason for the rights of workers to be disregarded.
“MASI President, Georgina Kekea says it is sad to see that workers in the media industry were found to be dismissed without due process.
“She says the labor laws clearly state the processes for dismissal and media companies must adhere to the processes in place - COVID or not.
“The labor laws clearly state how termination should be done. When terminating a worker employers must follow certain procedures. This can include verbal warning, written warning and suspension, before termination.”
