The Human Resources Management Unit (HRMU) of the Government of Montserrat confirms that it is carefully considering the situation of an employee whose eyesight has severely deteriorated over the past two (2) years.

According to Officials at the HRMU, it is not straightforward to find fulfilling and safe employment for an individual in this situation, whether in the public or private sector. However, the Montserrat Public Service has procedures and processes to support staff with ill-health or disability and, hence, the matter must be considered carefully to reach a fair, impartial and constructive decision at the soonest possible time.

The Human Resources Management Unit notes that personal details of that particular individual's case have been shared widely and publicly, along with copies of official correspondence.  HRMU says this is inappropriate and can be distressing to an individual and their family members.

The HMRU is therefore urging such individuals to refrain from circulating such sensitive personal data unless agreed to by all the parties involved. So, let’s continue to work together towards having a “World Class Public Service Workforce”.
