‘We Remain Law
Abiding In Liberia’
-Says GVL

Golden Veroleum (Liberia) Inc. says redundancy exercise carried out on its employees is in line with applicable and relevant provisions of the laws of Liberia.
The Company said it has taken significant steps to revamp its Human Resources and Legal Departments to bring vibrancy and robustness to both departments, thereby minimizing labor-related and industrial issues.
The company said the bolstered efforts are aimed at promoting good and fair labor practices in its operations in Liberia while affected personnel are receiving their severance pay.
The Company said it has been engaging with its team of lawyers who constantly provide the necessary and appropriate pieces of advice that inform the actions taken with respect to matters that directly or indirectly affect the Company’s sustainability in Liberia.
The Company said that while actions taken against its employees are sometimes not in the favor of the affected employees, these actions are consistent with its internal policies which have been widely circulated to employees.
The GVL asserted that it has signed the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with the Golden Veroleum Agricultural Workers Union of Liberia (GOVAWUL), and has distributed copies of the Decent Work Act of 2015, and other relevant laws of the Republic of Liberia among the workers.
The Company maintains that it continues to be law-abiding, by not only conforming to existing laws, but by complying with rulings from courts and other administrative forums given the statutory responsibility to adjudicate disputes.
GVL stressed that it remains committed to maintaining a sustainable presence in Liberia and continues to make increasing efforts that will improve the well-being and livelihoods of both its employees and host communities.
