Ten staff of the Agricultural Development Bank (adb) have filed a suit at an Accra High Court challenging their dismissal from the bank.
They are also demanding Ȼ150,000 each for the embarrassment caused them.
The suit was filed by Charles Oduro, Panin Fredua- Agyeman, Daniel Dery, Yaw Osei- Poku, Priscilla Kuranchie, Mark I mom, Nurideen Mohammed, Kwabena Agyanim-Boateng, Abdul- Mansuur Ibrahim and Kenneth Eben Adanyinah.
The 10 are also challenging their dismissals; saying it was wrongful and unlawful.
They are seeking an order restraining the management of adb or its agents from dealing with their bank accounts with intent to changing the terms of loans advanced to all, except Nurideen Mohammed.
Also, the court should order adb to completely write off loans advanced to them from the date of dismissal as part of compensation for the purported dismissal in addition to compensation of seven years gross salary for wrongful dismissal to each of the dismissed staff.
They also want an apology from adb to be published in a national daily newspaper within 14 days from the day of judgement.
The dismissed staff have been accused of concealing information about bounced cheques presented by clients which management said is contrary to a 2005 Bank of Ghana (BoG) notice as well as breaching the Collective Bargaining Agreement dated January 2014 to December 2015.
