Wednesday, 17th January, 2024

MBABANE:Douglas Schultz,the Financial Executive of the Fidelity Security Services Group whose offices are based in Johannesburg says, the security company pays some employees above the Minimum Wage.

This comes after this Swaziland News published an article where some Fidelity security guards working for Illovo Sugar Limited were complaining that,the company promised them three thousand five hundred Rands(R3,500) as a salary but later paid two thousand seven hundred Rands(R2,700.00) alleging that,the eSwatini Government Gazette does not allow the payment of ‘huge’ salaries.

But in an email sent to editor Zweli Martin Dlamini on Wednesday, Douglas Schultz, the Fidelity Security Group Financial Executive said, the company upholds the highest standards of integrity and categorically denied the allegations published in the article.

“First and foremost, we emphasise that Fidelity Security Services is committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity, and we categorically deny any suggestion of collusion or condoning unethical practices, especially when it comes to our employees, who are the backbone of our business.As a responsible Employer, we adhere strictly to prevailing legislation and ensure that all our employees receive the minimum prescribed wages.Contrary to the claims in the article, we can confirm without fear of contradiction that the employees in question are indeed compensated according to the prescribed minimum wage and, in some instances, even more, depending on various factors”, he said.

The Fidelity Security Group Financial Executive further invited this publication to visit its offices to verify the payroll records adding that, an examination of the records will dispel any doubts and demonstrate the company’s commitment to fair and just employment practices.

“We believe that a thoroughly examination of our payroll records will dispel any doubts and demonstrate our commitment to fair and just employment practices”, said the Finacial Executive through the email sent to editor Zweli Martin Dlamini.
