BEACHES RESORT ATMOSPHERE FOR STAFF APPREHENSIVE SINCE POLYGRAPHS

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 05 Dec 2014 – Beaches Resort Villages and Spa claims it is protecting itself and its guests by running polygraph tests across its resorts in the region. The Turks and Caicos property was not exempt and weeks after the lie detector test interviews were done; there have reportedly been terminations. Stephen Hector, the Global PR Executive for the resort explained that the effort is on a specific group and denied that there has been any mass layoffs at the property. After running our initial report last night; there have been more comments to Magnetic Media about this matter… workers who say the atmosphere at the property has shifted tremendously; an apprehensive mood as the reported ‘let gos’ are sudden and appears to have happened to individuals who voluntarily participated in the polygraph tests. Participation was not mandatory; but said a few to us, it was strongly suggested to be better for their futures at the resort. We will reach out again to Mr. Hector. Meanwhile, in the TCI it is not illegal to quiz workers using a polygraph; the information gathered though we understand would not be admissible in a court of law.

The list published by The Quint shows that the highest amount of electoral bonds had been sold in Kolkata, followed by Mumbai where bonds worth Rs 200 crore had been sold during May 6 to May 20. Delhi came third, where bonds worth Rs 112 crore had been sold between May 6 and May 24. The portal further claimed that in January, March, April and May, electoral bonds worth Rs 4,798 crore had been sold. Similarly in March, April, may, July, October and November last year, more such bonds had been sold by SBI taking the total amount to Rs 5,851 crore. This proves that the political parties had earned a major portion of their election expenditure by selling electoral bonds, but there is no way to prove who had purchased the same. SBI authorities said they did not have any clue as to who was paying the money to which political party. The Opposition alleged that out of the total amount of electoral bonds sold, the lion’s share had gone to BJP.last_img read more
