Belize Telemedia Limited today responded swiftly to an erroneous news item posted on Facebook by a media blog, Hot off the Press-Belize. The media blog reported that one hundred persons were fired by BTL today.   BTL released a statement, saying that the report is utterly false, misleading, defamatory, and lacks professional journalistic expression. The company explained that as part of its normal operations, the company reviews the relationship with contracted employees to see how best to further optimize. The release says (quote) today, the organization informed some 20 staff that their fixed contracts ending March 31 2021 come to a natural end.” (Unquote) The release goes on to say that in February 2021, the company offered its employees a Voluntary Early Retirement Incentive Plan that provides both staff and management with an opportunity to choose early retirement as an option. BTL says that the incentive has had good success due to the benefits offered to those who meet the criteria.
