South Africa’s Game Stores Face Court Threat over Kenya Exit.

0 31

Before leaving the Kenyan market, South African retail behemoth Massmart, which runs the Game Stores, had a dispute with its staff over redundancy money.

If Massmart and the Kenya Union of Commercial Food and Allied Workers are unable to come to an agreement, the union threatened legal action.

The employees want two months’ compensation in lieu of notice for those who haven’t reached the five-year mark at the company. As well as goodwill payments of 15 days for each year spent working for the shop on top of an equal gratuity.

Massmart has rejected the increased salary expectations, claiming that due to financial constraints, it is unable to meet the union’s demands.

The closure of Massmart will increase the growing list of firms from Southern Africa to close shop in Kenya.
