JUTC could face legal sanctions
The Auditor General said the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) could face legal sanctions for not paying millions of dollars in statutory deductions.
The report said approximately $573.1 million was deducted from worker’s salaries during the 2002/ 2003 financial year.
According to the Auditor General, these deductions were not paid to the relevant collecting agencies.
Mr. Strachan said this constitutes a breach of the law, and could expose the company to possible legal sanctions and adversely affect employees’ entitlement to certain benefits.
