Former FNB employee demands over E427 000
MBABANE – Former First National Bank Payroll Admi-nistrator, Lungile Masilela is demanding more than E427 000 from the bank.
Masilela was employed by the bank on June 1, 2001, as payroll administrator and worked continuously until August 22, 2011, when her services were terminated.
She is now demanding E427 354.91 as compensation for unfair dismissal. She alleged that the termination of her services was procedurally and substantively unfair because the bank did not have sufficient and fair grounds.
She alleged that the reason for her dismissal was not one permitted by Section 36 of the Employment Act of 1980. "At the date of dismissal, the respondent (FNB) failed to pay the applicant (Masilela) her terminal benefits," Masilela alleged.
"The applicant claims reinstatement to her position, failing which compensation in the maximum amount of 12 months salary totalling E332 776.56 and E94 578.35 notice pay," Masilela said.
The dispute was allegedly reported to the Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration Commission (CMAC), but was not resolved.
The case will be back in court on July 30, 2012, as the First National Bank is yet to file its responding papers.
