As of today several employees at the Carlisle Bay Resort will be out of a job.
In a letter dated Nov. 20, the hotel located Old Road community told a number of its employees, “due to the massive downturn in business due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we implemented reduced work hours for some of our staff members in our to do our best to keep them employed during these trying times.
“Our measures have fallen short and we are forced to temporally lay off some of our staff members…for a period of three weeks.”
The lay off period will therefore end on Dec. 7.
The missive, signed by the Resorts Manager Taroon Missry, also stated that food care packages will be given to all staff on Friday.
