Employees who have been working on contract basis at Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have now been made permanent.

Minister of Sports Dayasiri Jayasekara, who held a meeting with the Interim Committee of SLC, had requested for this change regarding employees whose contracts are being renewed regularly. This was revealed in a press release issued by SLC.

The Interim Committee has conceded to the sports minister’s request and issued the letters of permanent employment to the staff in a simple ceremony held on November 6 (Friday). Their permanency will be effective from November 16 (Monday).

“Employees need to function with dignity and the Interim Committee has only recognized the rights of the employees of SLC and that this gesture has been bestowed upon them, to carry out their functions without fear or favour,” said Interim Committee Chairman Sidath Wettimuny. (TBR)
