Nairobi County Government employees who were reinstated by the Labour Court last week are now decrying harassment.

Some of the employees were on Friday November 19, 2021 denied access to the Assembly premises by the Chief sergeant-at-arms saying they had been given orders to do so.

“We were today bared from getting inside. We had to make calls for us to be allowed in. One of the Board members came and it is with him  that we were able to get in,” the source close to the proceedings said.

The employees have complained that they are yet to receive their salary statements despite the court giving an order that they be given their full salaries until the issues are solved.

The assembled staff say they have not been directed to write  a show course letter to explain why they should not be sacked, neither have they received sacking letters but just heard rumors that the letters were there.

“We have not been given any letter so far. We have not received our salary statements for October neither, “ another source added.

The employment and labour relations court reinstated the employees after they were demoted and ordered for the release of any withheld salaries and dues.

In a court order dated November 12, 2021 that was signed by Justice Ocharo Kebira, and certified under certificate of urgency, the county staff were reinstated pending any appeals by the County Assembly.
