Staff laid off without notice in high ‘été’

Staff laid off without notice in high ‘été’

By Staff Writer - August 19, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 19.11.14Monaco’s trade union umbrella organisation is outraged after 17 employees of a restaurant on Port Hercules were dismissed without notice.

At the height of the summer season, July 20, the workers were handed written notice of dismissal by the management, which said they could not afford to meet the payroll costs. The restaurant at 18 route de la piscine La Condamine, L’ÉTÉ, closed on the following day.

Olivier Cardot, deputy general secretary of the Union of Trade Unions of Monaco (USM), said that such a situation had never been seen before. Redundancy payments are set in the law at one-fifth of a month’s salary per business year, he added.

L’ÉTÉ’s Facebook page says the restaurant in temporary closed, see you soon, and their website link redirects to the new Roof Sushi and Lounge Bar at avenue d’Ostende.
