Change.Org, a US-based online petition platform Kenyan Director has sued the multinational company for unfair dismissal.
Priscilla Muthoni Maingi is seeking millions in damages from the company claiming that she was sacked so that her job could be given to a man.
She claims that shortly after she was declared redundant and thereafter ejected from the company, her
position was swiftly filled by one Lenny Ruvaga.
“Taking note that I was not accorded any reasons for my termination, my successor performed the same role as I had while an employee of the Respondents, it is, therefore, clear that my ejection from the company was intentionally orchestrated to replace me by a gentleman on account of my gender,” she claims in court documents.
She has also sued LTSDL KYA Solutions Ltd, an outsourcing company registered in Kenya, DEEL Ke, an agent of DEEL INC, a multinational based in California.
It is her case that LTSDL KYA Solutions Limited, an outsourcing company orchestrated her removal from Change. Org.
Employment and Labour Relations Court Judge Byram Ongaya allowed her to serve Change.Org and its agents by mail after she claimed her lawyers cannot effect service to the multinational companies as they do not have a physical office in Kenya.
Maingi in court documents indicates that was employed by the outsourcing company which hires outsourced workers and avails them to a client enterprise, in 2021.
