Royal Media Sends Employees On Compulsory Leave, Cuts Their Salaries by 20-30%


Several Royal Media Services (RMS) employees have been sent on a compulsory leave, and salaries of all employees slashed by 30-30 percent.

In an internal memo in our possession, the media house said it had recorded reduced income following the coronavirus (covid-19) that had hit the country, adversely affecting business.

“Media being an essential service, a scaled down operation will continue with minimal staff. The Directors will communicate the names of the members of staff who will be working on a shift system. in order to reduce exposure, all other staff will proceed to take their accrued leave and if exhausted, leave in advance until further notice.
Further, with effect from 1st April 2020, all employees will be subjected to 20% to 30% reduction of their gross monthly salary based on their job levels. Each staff will be issued with their individual letter through their supervisor,” the memo read in part.

The reduction is temporary and will be reversed when things return to normal, the media house said.
