Several employees at the ski resort in Sälen in Sweden have been fired after attending parties that were not in line with Swedish infection control rules. It writes SVT.
Skistar, which runs the ski resort, will not say how many have lost their jobs, but it will be about a dozen employees.
– A number of employees arranged an illegal party that violates both our internal rules and the authorities’ recommendations during the ongoing corona pandemic, says destination manager Jonas Bauer in Skistar Sälen to SVT.
According to SVT’s information, there will be more parties with more participants than recommended.
– The consequence was that we have agreed with those affected that they are separated from their employment conditions and leave Skistar. We as an employer have reacted in similar ways before, now we do it again, and we will do it if it should happen again, says Bauer.
Infected people must have worked
This weekend, the Swedish broadcaster wrote that several employees had said that they felt pressured to work even though they were infected with corona.
The chief infection control officer in the Dalarna region says that Sälen has been hit hard by the corona pandemic and that there is now a lot of infection in the ski village. He strongly warned against coronary heart disease.
Skistar has denied that they have pressured anyone to work.
– This is not true regarding Skistar’s business in Sälen. We would never force an employee to work if they are ill, or to return to work prematurely, in accordance with the rules that apply from the health authority, Skistar wrote in a press release.
