MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Labour Ministry says it has found Firestone-Liberia guilty for wrongful dismissal of two of its employees, Hilary Teage and Sam Bosyou.

In the ruling, the Ministry ordered the company to pay over sixteen-thousand Dollars each as compensation.
The Labor Commissioner in Lower Margibi County, Roye Brown, said:” Firestone-Liberia should reinstate the two men as they were never dismissed in accordance with the 2015 Decent Work Bill.’

Commissioner Brown said Firestone in its own wisdom, could have warned the complaints or suspended in line with Section 14.4 (b) of the Decent Work Act of 2015.

The Act says all cases and employer shall implement a fair internal procedure before terminating an employee.
