Government warns no one should be laid off

The Government has warned that no one should be laid off from their employment despite the crisis in the country.

Head of the Presidential Task Force Basil Rajapaksa warned that no loss of employment should take place both in the state and private sectors while the country is moving forward, the President’s Office said.

He said that the newly instituted Task Force has the capability of fulfilling its mandate with a new vision in order to achieve objectives set out by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

The Task Force will support new businesses and will extend the fullest cooperation to already existing large, medium and small scale enterprises.

Although the private sector offices have been advised to resume work at 10.00 am daily from May 11th, industrial and production activities can be adjusted in accordance with their requirements. (Colombo Gazette)
