A former worker of Next Media Services, Moses Alsayed Lubega, wants his former employers to pay him Shs30 million as terminal benefits after alleged unlawful dismissal that happened only a few days ago.
Lubega lodged his complaint through his lawyers of Kaggwa & Kaggwa Advocates who have warned Next Media Services that the money should be paid within a period of seven days and it that it must come with 10 percent interest as legal fees.
Through his lawyers, Lubega contends that he was unlawfully dismissed contrary to Section 66 of the Employed Act. “The purported disciplinary hearing was contrary to the S.66 of the Employment Act,” Lubega’s lawyers say.
“The purpose of this letter is to request you to pay our client’s dues and also to give him a Certificate of service as required by the law and retract the publication issued on various platforms you control since he was not given a fair hearing.
Next media Services which owns several media outlets recently sacked Lubega after producing a news story that misinterpreted facts about the side effects of Measles-Rubella after the vaccine was administered to children to protect them from the disease. The story ran on NBSTv which is part of Next Media Services, majorly owned by businessman Kin Karrisa.
