The Guyana Marriott Hotel has terminated the services of 37 employees from various departments of its local operation, Minister of Labour Joseph Hamilton today confirmed.
The decision comes amid the lockdown of the country’s airports and curtailment of dining activities in the wake of COVID-19. Occupancy levels at hotels have fallen drastically. Guyana Marriott Hotel officials were not available for comment.
Hamilton told Stabroek News that the company on August 24th wrote the Chief Labour Officer Charles Ogle informing him of their plans to let go of the workers.
