The decision was taken on the 5th October by the Chairman, Deputy Director (Programs), Directors and Assistant Directors.
At that meeting, it was decided that 50% of the employees other than those who are engaged in essential duties should be provided with the work from home option and those who work from home should be paid half of their salaries.
It is reported that the responsibility of identifying the essential people to be brought in for the duties of the corporation and preparing the documents have been handed over to the heads of the engineering, news and program divisions.
In the meantime, it has been decided to provide only one vehicle per driver.
Meanwhile, internal sources of the SLBC say that the Acting Director (Administration) has been instructed to provide an incentive allowance based on the number of days the employees, who continued to work during the period when the country was closed due to COVID-19, reported to duty.
