Just some thoughts, maybe not too coherent? on current long term staffers.
So what do current staff members do?
If they have been there for a few years or more they are probably up for compo and restitution too ? If they do get it they will be in lowers. They would have to give it back to the COS. But to give several years backpay and compo and just hand it back?
All that loot they could use on kid's education, unattended health, medical things,
accomodation..........not to mention OT levels, etc!
They could just wait out their current 2.5 or 5 year contract and leave and become public. Some would probably leave very quickly and others would just complete their contract. If they are to get the money they cannot be put in lowers just for recieving it because they did not cause that. They would have to get it by law, or scientology would be up for more payouts for violation.
So what would you do if you were current, long term staff. The best thing would be to leave right now, before the cult makes some deal which restricts the payouts to only former staff. (That might not be easy with the OZ Employment Ombudsman but you never know....) It would be best to get out now and put your name on the list so you can get your money. OSA? Are you getting this?
Some of the payments are going to be size XXXXX OS, with wages + compensation for violations of workers rights and violations of general human rights.
PS. It's like a volcano erupting.
We are waiting for the final report on the investigation and this should give clear guidelines and recommendations for all concerned.
Hopefully with this breaking news the final report is not too far away ...
