Staff at the Marley Resort and Spa say they are facing salary delays again this month -- this time without prior warning or any explanation from management.
Just over a week after staff were supposed to receive two weeks salary on April 8, an employee who contacted The Tribune said the payment had still not come through.
She said staff morale is at an all time low at the Cable Beach resort, with many employees finding it hard to put on a brave face at work as they fight mounting bills at home.
"You see tourists paying money, coming here to have a good time and it's not their fault so you want to make it happen for them, but it's really hard when you're not getting paid," said the employee.
General manager of the resort, Barbara Hanna-Cox, said she had "no comment" when contacted on the latest salary delays.
The Tribune was directed to speak with resort owner, Stephanie Marley, daughter of reggae legend Bob Marley, but a message left for Ms Marley at the Bob Marley Charitable Foundation in Jamaica was not returned.
In late March, Ms Hanna-Cox claimed that salary delays at that time were the result of a combination of low occupancy at the boutique hotel and a "huge" electricity bill leaving the company temporarily unable to meet its financial obligations in a timely manner. She apologised to employees, calling the salary delays "short term."
Her response came after an employee of the resort complained that staff had been given just one day's notice in a memo that their March 25 bi-monthly salary payment would not arrive on time.
Ultimately that payment was made in two instalments, according to sources - with one week's salary paid on April 2, and another on April 7.
Now staff have been disappointed again, finding that their April 8 salary payment had not been made.
