Alleged unjust stoppage of salary: Court fixes June 26 for judgment
The National Industrial Court, Abuja, will on June 26 give judgment in a case of alleged stoppage of salary instituted by one Emmanuel Yusuf against Zankil Medical Centre, Abuja.
Yusuf, a driver at Zankil Medical Centre, Abuja, had sued his former employer for alleged unjust stoppage of his salary since 2013.
Justice Edith Agbakoba, fixed the date after counsel to the parties adopted their final written addresses.
Adopting his address, Mr Mike Omosegbon, counsel to the appellant said that his client’s salary was unceremoniously and unjustly stopped since 2013.
“As long as my client remains in the employment of the respondent, his entitlements must be paid, “he said.
Omosegbon urged the court to order the respondent to pay the claimant his entitlements and grant other reliefs sought.
Counsel to Zankil Hospital, Mr Yusuf Olakunle, in his submission, urged the court to dismiss the suit, describing it as “frivolous.” (NAN)
