Staff at cleaning firm ‘not paid for months’


Some staff at a cleaning firm have not been paid for up to three months, an employee has claimed.

The staff member said “hard-working and dedicated” staff at Just Cleaners Ltd had been hit by non-payment and late payment of wages.

The worker, who asked not to be named, complained that several staff members had not received their wages for months.

The source added: “Workers are not being paid on time and not being paid at all.”

The employee said that, in some cases, employees had not received wages for up to three months.

The source added that at least seven employees had experienced problems with pay.

The staffer said: “I’m sure there are more.”

The employee added the problem deserved attention “because this is the habitual behaviour of this company”.

The employee said no explanation had been given for late payments.

The staffer added: “No one get’s a reason. It’s ‘you will get paid on this day’ — and the day comes and goes and still no pay.

“I just listen to other employees being told that they are going to be paid on a certain day and it never happens. This is repetitive every month.”

The employee said that staff had not contacted anyone outside the company over the payment problems.

Just Cleaners’ clients include the Bermuda Police Service, Butterfield Bank and power firm Belco.

Management at Just Cleaners, based on Midsea Lane, Pembroke, did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

The firm’s Facebook page said the company was “a one-stop shop for Bermuda’s residential, commercial and industrial cleaning”.

It added that the company “are certified green cleaners” and offer services including maids, corporate contracting, steam cleaning and window cleaning.
