Former Jerky’s manager awarded $5 million for ‘unjustifiable’ dismissal

The Industrial Disputes Tribunal (IDT) has awarded a former restaurant manager $5 million for her “unjustifiable” dismissal after its first decision in 2020 affirming her termination was overturned by the Supreme Court.

The IDT is a quasi-judicial body established by law to resolve disputes between workers and their employers.

Melisa Donalds was the restaurant manager at Jerky’s Bar & Grill in Montego Bay, St James, for six years before her employment was terminated “effectively immediately” on August 16, 2016 via a letter signed by the proprietor of the eatery, Tor Moe, according to documents submitted to the IDT.
