UoN PROPOSES LAW CHANGE TO KEEP EMPLOYEES FROM LAYOFFS

The University of Nairobi (UoN) has drafted legislative proposals, which include a clause shielding employees from being fired during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Covid-19 Response and Management Draft Bill also seeks to bar Kenya Power and all water companies from disconnecting crucial services to their clients due to non-payment until the country is declared coronavirus free.

The Bill also pushes for reconnection for those cut off from power and water before the pandemic was declared, and compels providers to offer the services until Covid-19 is defeated.
