Labour Tribunal overrules GMR summons to airport employee

The Labour Tribunal issued an injunction Tuesday to GMR after the company ordered an employee of the Maldives Airports Company studying abroad to report back to work.

According to Haveeru, the tribunal issued the temporary order after investigating a complaint filed by the employee, Shahryaz Latheef, who is currently in Bangkok, Thailand.

Pending a final decision on the case, the tribunal ordered GMR to pay Latheef basic salary and other expenses for the course as agreed upon in an agreement made with the Maldives Airports Company on July 8, 2010.

However, Latheef’s lawyer Ali Shah claimed that as of today GMR has yet to make the payments, adding that he would take the Indian infrastructure giant to court to enforce the tribunal’s order if it failed to comply before the end of the day.
