ARK Teleservice Ltd. of Bisee yesterday responded to a story in the VOICE on Thursday indicating that six of its employees had been fired without notice.
The statement said:
“Ark Teleservices Ltd has been successfully operating in St Lucia for the last six years employing approximately three hundred people. To date a significant portion of our employees are from our period of inception.
“We value every employee who passes through our doors, sometimes however, terminations are inevitable when there is a lack of compliance with the rules and regulations of employment.
“We have a responsibility to keep our clients happy and cannot tolerate performance that does not meet basic requirements for punctuality and attendance.
“Our cutting edge technology systems keep an accurate track of attendance and performance of every member of staff on a daily basis. All decisions on terminations are done based on the logged statistics from our systems and within the laws of the land.
“We are consistently recruiting bright and articulate people with great work ethics and welcome those who are willing to actively contribute to our company’s success
“We live in a civil society that is governed by the rule of law and therefore must at all times abide by the laws which seek to do justice between us as citizens. We welcome the opportunity to defend the position we have taken in this matter bearing in mind that we have subscribed to and applied the relevant laws at all times . We would therefore encourage any party who feels aggrieved by any decision taken by our company to seek and engage the prescribed mechanisms for resolving disputes and not engage in menacing and disruptive actions which only seek to undermine the integrity and good name of our company.” .
