Kenya: The industrial court has ordered the state-owned Chemelil sugar mill to pay Sh18.2 million to 28 former workers of the mill. The judgement has come at a time when the mill is suffering from financial scarcity.
The employees were on duty from 1994 to 2010 and had claimed terminal benefits.
According to the news report published in www.standardmedia.co.ke, employees under the leadership of Dickson Nyakach and Patrick Magana had moved to court to settle their terminal benefits. Chemelil put its stand in the court doubting the actual period they worked with the mill.
Justice Nderi passed the judgement citing documentary evidence and said that these workers are eligible to get terminal benefits. He ordered the company to pay Sh18,236,583.70 to these workers.
