Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Mark Brantley.
Last week, the Four Seasons Resort, Nevis, issued a statement indicating that they will commence a temporary lay-off of its employees, effective August 1st 2020.
Personalized lay-off letters were issued by People and Culture as of Monday, July 27th, 2020.
This comes “as a result of the ongoing closure of our borders and the resulting loss of business due to the failure to establish a date for reopening the borders”, the Resort said in a statement.
Employees were paid 100% of their salaries during April and May, and 60% during June and July.
Premier Brantley, speaking at his press conference on July 30th, gave the number of persons that will be laid off.
