Nairobi – Fifty-two private security firms have been sued for failing to comply with the minimum wage directive for their guards.
The case was filed on behalf of the guards by the Kenya National Private Security Workers’ Union, which is demanding an increase in arrears since 2009, when the minimum wage order was announced by the government.
The guards argue that the 52 private security firms had failed to honour the directive to increase their salary by 18 percent in 2009, 20 percent in 2010 and 12.5 percent in 2011.
