As memories of Rio 2016 fade, the sting of negativity surrounding T&T’s performance persists.
There was no shortage of puerile, less-than-clever memes targeting gymnast Marisa Dick.
The Employers Consultative Association (ECA) has distance itself from an audio tape circulating on Facebook which contains erroneous claims by a company to a caller implicating the organisation.
In a statement yesterday, the ECA said the matter concerns human resource policy advice it purportedly gave on a discriminatory practice.
It continued: “The ECA confirms that having reviewed the audio tape, the relevant information contained therein is not consistent with good human resource practice. The ECA states categorically that the advice which is alleged to have been provided by the ECA, was in fact never provided by the ECA.
“We further confirm that the advice which the ECA provided subsequently, was consistent with sound HR policy and practice.
“The ECA continues to be committed to providing sound human resource and industrial relations advice to all its members and clients within T&T.
“We wish to take this opportunity to remind our members and employers in T&T that they are bound by the provisions of the Equal Opportunity Act and should contact us for guidance on treating with recruitment and any other employment matter.”
