Archives director placed on administrative leave

Bermuda Archives director Karla Hayward has been placed on administrative leave,

The Royal Gazette understands.

Earlier this month, staff at the archives voted by secret ballot to strike unless Ms Hayward was removed from her post. They were set to down tools on October 4.

Ms Hayward has been criticised by both staff and researchers over her management of the archives, and complaints from archive users led to a 2008 investigation by Ombudsman Arlene Brock.

Responding to that report, Ms Hayward denied any wrongdoing, saying: “I honestly try to do my best.”
