MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The House of Representatives has halted Firestone Liberia’s pending redundancy of more than three-hundred employees.
The body also requested the company to submit all contracts between it and the Liberian Government, including other sub-contracting firms, and an audited financial statement for the past five years.
The House of Representatives took the decision Tuesday, July 14, 2020, following a communication by Margibi County District One Representative Tibelrosa Tampoweh, regarding Firestone’s plan to redundant at least three-hundred-seventy-four on July 26, 2020, Liberia’s Independence Day.
Appearing before the House of Representatives Tuesday, July 14, 2020, Firestone Liberia General Manager Don Darden added that the Company’s action met the consent of the Labor Ministry, amid financial difficulties during the pandemic.
But Labor Minister Moses Kollie countered the assertion, adding that Firestone failed to present the necessary documents to justify the redundancy.
