According to PwC, any claim of the workers in terms of salary arrears, wages, leave, severance pay and other entitlement will be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651) and the Banks and Specialized Deposit Taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930).

In a related development, PwC has indicated that it will engage the workers’ Union or their representative in the deciding what is due the workers.

But the payment of part or all of the amounts due the workers will be dependent on the timing and level of realization of the two bank’s assets.
