According to a report by CNN, former African employees of Twitter have yet to receive their severance pay, months after being laid off.

Driving The News

According to unnamed sources, laid-off workers from Twitter offices in Ghana have not been compensated after their abrupt firing last year.

All the staff from Twitter Africa were laid off after Elon Musk completed his acquisition of Twitter in 2022.

Former employees had accepted Twitter’s offer to pay three months of severance, as well as legal costs incurred during negotiations and repatriation costs for foreign staff.

Digging Deeper

Carla Olympio, an attorney representing the former employees, told CNN there has been little progress since, adding that Twitter never finalized the offer and has maintained “complete silence” since May, shortly after the settlement was agreed.

A spokesperson for Ghana’s Ministry of Employment and Labor Relations told CNN it is investigating the claims.
