USQ faculty members in Dubai demand compensation :: GN
In a letter to Professor Bill Lovegrove, vice-chancellor of USQ Australia, a copy of which was sent to Gulf News, they have asked to be paid "in accordance with obligatory redundancy pay-outs in Australia as a sign of good faith and respect for the work done by the faculty and staff at USQ Dubai, with the sudden closure leaving staff members unemployed without notice".
The staff has accused USQ of showing "a lack of good faith" in them and said the closure "reflects a lack of concern for those staff who have remained loyal, possibly compromising their future job prospects here in Dubai".
The letter was sent last Sunday. However, no response has been forthcoming from USQA.
