San­dals re­sponds to pos­si­ble Em­ploy­ment Scam

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

San­dals Re­sorts in Saint Lu­cia has re­sponded to pos­si­ble third party agents claim­ing to rep­re­sent the Hu­man Re­source in­ter­ests of the com­pany.

On Wed­nes­day re­ports sur­faced that in­di­vid­u­als and/ or an or­ga­ni­za­tion was al­legedly en­gaged in such a prac­tice.

In a state­ment, San­dals Re­sorts re­minded the gen­eral pub­lic that “only the re­spec­tive Hu­man Re­source depart­ments of each San­dals prop­erty in the is­land han­dled 'all Hu­man Re­source mat­ters', in­clud­ing the hir­ing of per­son­nel”.

The mat­ter was ini­tially raised on a Ra­dio Caribbean In­ter­na­tional (RCI) broad­cast where an al­leged vic­tim voiced con­cerns about the is­sue.

“There is a man call­ing ran­dom peo­ple for in­ter­views at San­dals Grande, but it's a scam. He is ask­ing for $120 for uni­forms and asks you to come for 8:00am . . . This hap­pened to me and two of my friends this morn­ing. We would have been ei­ther robbed, raped, or killed or maybe all three,” the in­di­vid­ual said via mes­sage to the ra­dio sta­tion.

She warned all Saint Lu­cians to be aware of the po­ten­tial scam and to re­port the mat­ter wher­ever pos­si­ble.

San­dals Re­sorts said, "No or­ga­ni­za­tion or in­di­vid­ual is au­tho­rized to act on be­half of San­dals Re­sorts In­ter­na­tional un­less oth­er­wise an­nounced.”

It con­tin­ued, "The pub­lic is ad­vised to ig­nore and re­port any third party agency that ma­li­ciously pro­fesses to rep­re­sent the com­pany's in­ter­est in this re­gard."

The re­sort com­pany also made it clear that uni­forms are is­sued to all San­dals Re­sorts em­ploy­ees free of charge.
