LETTER ABOUT SUSPENSION
I would like to officially inform you that management has removed you from the company as of today Tuesday, October 13, 2020, until further notice.
This is due to your participation in # ENDSARSBRUTALITY #, which has been taking place throughout the country for several days.
You will remember that management has done everything possible to ensure the safety of all employees since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic by asking us to work from home, and when going to work is mandatory, a company car is provided to avoid contact with the general public. …
Your participation in the protest overrides management’s decision to keep us out of the public domain, and for this reason, you should be suspended until further notice to avoid spreading disease to staff.
Best regards, HR.
