St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) — Two hundred and eighty employees of the Four Seasons Resort Nevis were made redundant “due to the delay of the reopening of the borders, and the resulting loss of business”.
In a letter issued to employees on Thursday, October 15, 2020, the resort said “conforming to section 7 of the protection of the employment act of the laws of St. Kitts and Nevis, and according to your years of service with the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, you will receive a notice of termination pay”, adding that employees should begin applying for their severance from the Labour Department.
The letter further indicated that employees will be paid for any unused, accrued and or earned vacation and that they will be able to collect their last check and termination pay from October 19 through to the 23, 2020.
General Manager of the Resort, Mrs. Yvette Thomas- Henry, used the opportunity to thank those employees for their hard work and commitment over the years to the resort and to the Island of Nevis.
Meanwhile, the resort will be welcoming guests back to their property on November 01, 2020. Other resorts and hotels in the federation have reopened and some others are preparing to do so in short order.
