A former Kenya Airways (KQ) staff is seeking compensation to the tune of Sh6,894,862.98 as per terms of service agreement.
The staff who worked at the airline for 8 years and 9 months prior to being sent home early last year, told cnyakundi.com that she tried to get her dues paid but all has been in vain.
According to the Kenya labour laws, a staff who is declared redundant mus the paid half salary calculated for every full year of work.
The Kenyan Employment Act 2007, defines redundancy as the loss of a job or occupation through no fault of an employee, happening mostly where the services of the said employee are no longer needed. The Kenyan law on redundancy also stipulates that the employer will pay the employee declared redundant, not less than one month notice or one month’s wages in lieu of notice. The employer is also expected to pay the employee declared redundant severance pay at the rate of not less than 15 days for each completed year of service.
The former KQ staff lodged her complaint at the Ministry of Labour, asking KQ to pay her dues but so far the airline has not honoured it.
KQ should honour this obligation very fast as required by law. Cnyakundi.com has verified these claims, we also have a document in our possession.
