Tony Roma’s has had to lay off about 45 employees due to its closing. The Ministry of Labor confirmed that 12 conciliation requests were submitted by its workers on February 17.
This can be done when the employer and employee do not agree on terms of liquidation. The issues can include not being paid, deadlines not being met, and a disagreement in regards to the amount paid or social guarantees provided.
Countless other workers have approached the Ministry with questions related to the layoff and conciliation process. They are entitled to legal advice regarding the aspects of the closure and layoff that relate to them directly.
The restaurant was opened in 2000 in Escazu by a franchise operated in Central America with Salvadoran and Honduran partners. It specialized in ribs. The restaurant has been closed since last week and is already being remodeled.
