In a memo, Country General Manager Mehdi Morad said the management has resolved to shut down the Fairmont Norfolk and the Fairmont Mara Safari Club indefinitely and let go of all employees.
“Due to the uncertainty of when and how the impact of the global pandemic will result in the business picking up in the near future, we are left with no option but to close down the business indefinitely, It is, therefore, the decision of the management to terminate the services of all its employees due to ‘frustration’ by way of mutual separation and taking into account the loyalty and dedication the employees have put into the success of our company in the previous years,” he said
Mehdi further added that all employees will be served with the termination letters by Friday, June 5th adding that they will also be paid a one month salary.
“Employees will be entitled to one month’s pay in lieu of notice. You will be entitled to your pension as per the rules of the Scheme,” he added
