This letter is a response from ComputerLand to our feature on Tony Weerasinghe of Millennium Technology in our column
Tony Weerasinghe's interview in your columns of the 19th instant makes interesting reading. As a former colleague and on behalf of ComputerLand where the seeds of his venture first germinated I should like to congratulate him on the phenomenal success of his company "Millennium Technologies" and wish him every success in the future.
However in the course of this exercise - with which we have no quarrel whatsoever - he has, inadvertently perhaps, shown ComputerLand in rather poor light. It is this perception that we wish to correct.
Let's get down to basics without more ado. Mr. Weerasinghe says he paid Rs. 32 million for the purchase of our Open Systems Div. Is this factually correct? Article 01 of the sale agreement states as follows, "The Buyer agrees to purchase from the seller and the seller agrees to sell to the Buyer the goodwill of the seller's Open Systems Div.(hereinafter referred to as OSD) for a principal consideration of rupees thirty million (Rs. 30,000,000)". Without doubt Mr. Weerasinghe will have a copy of the agreement.
Mr. Weerasinghe joined ComputerLand in Oct. '94 and when he left us in Jan '96 to join Millennium we had run up accumulated losses amounting to Rs. 4 million give or take a thousand or two.Add to this a sum of 7.5 million in outstanding debts and what have you - chicken feed really. All this must be seen in the perspective of Mr. Weerasinghe's assertion that he had to meet a number.
As manager of OSD Mr. Weerasinghe was solely responsible for the running of his department. He was given free rein, housed in a separate building, separate staff and overheads.
The entirety of his overheads was however met by the other departments and as a result of these losses the company as a whole was denuded. Every month scarce resources were drawn off the other profit making divisions and poured into OSD and, to think that this went on month after month for well over a year.
To give you an idea the rent of the building he occupied was Rs. 125,000. Compare that with the building that housed the rest of the divisions - Rs 135,000. Mr. Weerasinghe budgeted for Rs 223 million in sales but achieved just 28 million. Small wonder his overheads couldn't be met and what kind of "number " is that.
Here now we have a conundrum. How did this loss making entity compelling closure suddenly spring to life in the same hands albeit in a different location. Mr. Weerasinghe who maintains that he took a risk in joining ComputerLand is now in a new guise.
The very division that he controlled for little over one year unsuccessfully, now assumes a life of its own and begins to show profits from day one. Will wonders ever cease. Tell us the reason pray!
These and many other questions arise when we peruse Mr. Weerasinghe's article. Truth is we are also somewhat amused, like OSD was too complicated for us to handle, but he nevertheless made our staff to join him as he himself admits.Image building is all well and good but to do it at the cost of another's reputation is distasteful. In this case it smacks of biting the hand that fed you.

Q: Under the Election Law we are required to give 4 hours leave for voting at a General Election. If an employee applies for 2 days leave for voting on the basis that his polling station is 150 miles away from the place of work what action can we take?
The election law specifies the minimum number of hours you should grant for voting. However, according to the Election Law the employer is required to grant a continuous period (not less than four hours in duration) to enable him to vote at the Election. Therefore, the employer is required to grant any period more than 4 hours as leave for voting considering the distance the employee has to travel to vote at his polling station.
Q: Some BOI Companies do not give letters of appointment, do not remit EPF, do not comply with BOI circulars increasing salaries but discontinue employment without giving valid reasons. They are even in the habit of changing their addresses to avoid receiving summons from courts. What are the remedies available for employees to redress these problems.?
The BOI companies are covered by existing Labour Laws of the country. If they do not remit EPF/ETF or fail to pay gratuity, the employee can make an official complaint to the commissioner of labour who is empowered to prosecute such employers to recover the amounts involved with surcharges. Similarly if they discontinue employees without valid reason, they can go before a Labour Tribunal or before the commissioner of labour under the provisions of Termination of Employment Act of 1971 for relief or compensation. If the BOI Companies fail to comply within BOI directions, such matters should be brought to the notice of BOI by the employee.
Regarding letters of appointment, there is no legal requirement in Sri Lanka to issue such letters except for shop & office employees.
Q: BOI Factories are financed by state banks on the basis of project reports accepted by BOI, in which managers salary is RS.15,000/= but the companies pay very low salaries and the Department of Labour is unable to help them as they do not came under the shop/office ordinance. How could such employees seek redress in above mentioned situations.?
The payment of salaries to Managers governed by the contract of employment entered between the Manager and the BOI company and not by the project proposal made to the BOI.
Q: Our organisation is a private company. We suspended an employee for misappropriation of company's funds and a Domestic Inquiry has been fixed. The accused employee has nominated a Trade Union Secretary as his defending officer and requested us to allow him to represent him at the Domestic Inquiry. Is it necessary us to allow this?
As you are a Private Company there is no legal requirement to allow the presence of a defending officer in the Domestic Inquiry. Such a provision is there in the Establishment code, which is applicable to state employees. Accordingly, allowing a defending officer will depend on the procedure followed by each organization. Most of the private sector companies allow only an "observer", (who is also an employee of the same company) to be present at the domestic inquiry. This provision is made even in collective agreement such as EFC/CMU collective agreement. However, the "observer" cannot question any witness and he is expected to play a silent role at the Inquiry.
Q:We employ travelling salesmen to sell our products. They normally work on Saturdays till 10.00pm and on Sundays from 8.00am to 6.00pm. Are these employees entitled for overtime for Saturday and Sunday work? They are paid a commission for selling our products.
As your salesmen are engaged in field work outside the shop or office, the provision relating to the normal maximum number of hours of work (i.e. 45 hours per week) will not apply to them. They can be employed over 45 hours per week without paying overtime. However, they are entitled for the weekly half holiday (Saturday) and for weekly full holiday (Sunday)
Q: I am an employee of a government owned limited liability company. I joined as an Electronics Technician and later I was appointed as an Assistant Manager .
By that time I had reached a basic salary of 7010/- on the structure of S8. The salary structure of the new post was on S10 beginning at RS. 5910/-.
On being appointed, my basic salary was reduced to Rs.5190 and the difference in the two basics viz. Rs.1820 was paid as a allowance that would be the same rate as the increment: Rs.325. In other words this allowance would be used to pay me my own annual increments. I protested about it and showed that this would affect my gratuity, EPF, ETF and Overtime. They told me that this had been done to avoid salary anomalies within the division. I have not had any tangible salary increase since 1993.
The personnel department argues that the advertisement that called for applications to the post did mention this (which is true) and that I had signed a document agreeing to this (also true). But I informed them that it was unfair to make this requirement from one who seeks career development and that they had no right to take away the privileges that I had already earned in the organisation. At my retirement, my basic salary will not reflect six years of service and this will reduce the gratuity payable.
I also suggested that if the basic was reduced and the allowance kept static, the effect would not be that harsh. The Personnel Department has remained non-committal throughout all this and has very carefully avoided replying all my letters from the very inception.
How can I seek redress if there is any possibility.
According to your letter you have applied for a post, the salary scale was lower than the salary scale you were placed and you have accepted the new post, agreeing to the terms and conditions of the new post of Assistant Manager. Therefore, there is no justification in your protest.
Q: According to law if an employee works on a Sunday, he is entitled to one and half times overtime and a lieu leave. During the past (3 years back) we have only paid one and half times overtime and not the lieu leave. At present we are acting according to law.
1. Now as the employees are claiming the past arrears of the lieu leave, does the company have to pay back the arrears according to the law?
2. Can the labour commissioner order the company to pay the arrears due to the employees?
3 Do the company have to pay the employees who have already left the company?
1. As the lieu leave is a legal entitlement the company has to pay arrears for the past.
2. The labour department can direct you and pay the arrears if any employee make a complaint.
3. Even the employees who have left you an entitled to receive arrears.
Q: In our company we have several labourers supplied by a Labour contractor. We do not make any payments to labourers and our dealings are only with the contractor. Is there any liability on us to make contribution to EPF and ETF on behalf of these labourers.?
The liability rests on the employer to make contribution to EPF/ETF. In your case, the employer is the labour contractor. However, if he fails to make contributions and the department of labour is unable to recover the contributions from him (due to incapacity to pay) through legal action, the company who engaged "contract Labour"is liable to make such contribution to EPF/ETF unless the company establishes that it takes all steps to ensure the contributions are made by the contractor.
Due to the confidential nature of the queries sent us we do not publish the names & addresses of the senders. And also we do not repy any letters by post individually.
Please do not hesitate to write to us about any problems you may come across regarding employment. Our expert on employment matters may advise you on any such matters. Our address is

Our topic for this week, is the primary market operations of Treasury Bills. We have the services of .Assistant General Manager (Treasury) DFCC Bank, Mangala Boyagoda to guide readers on the pros and cons of purchasing Treasury Bills.
Treasury Bills (TBills) offer a lower interest rate compared to bank deposit rates, this is a common phenomenon in developed countries. But in developing countries like Sri Lanka and India, it's the reverse. TBill rates are higher than bank fixed deposit rates.
For instance in Sri Lanka, a12 month bill is auctioned at 13 per cent interest. Bank fixed deposit rates are 9 per cent to 11 per cent on average. See the gap, there is ample opportunity for savers to move their money to government treasury bills.
Q: What is the advantage of buying Treasury Bills?
A:TBills are a very simple form of investment. The bill can be discounted anytime, anywhere before the maturity period, due to its liquidity. People are also willing to buy them because of its guilt edge security. It's like keeping cash at home.
Q: How does one know how much of TBills are on offer?
A: Every Monday, the Central Bank announces the quantum they hope to borrow from the public for that particular week on a 3,6, and 12 month basis. The Central Bank approved primary dealers could then bid for the TBills at the auction held every Wednesday.
Q: What should an investor take into account, prior to purchasing TBill?
A: If an investor wants to buy a TBill, he must first decide on what period he wishes to invest, be it 3,6, or 12 months. Once the period is decided, it's important for him to decide what rate he is going to ask from the government. The same Central Bank advertisement gives the previous week's auction weighted average rates indicating details of the previous auction, like the quantum the government issued, the number of bids they received, the amount they got, how much the government expected from the auction, and weighted average rates.
This gives a clear view to the investor. You have to compare this week's quantum against the last week's.
The government rates fluctuate from week to week. The quantum on issue and the bills maturing also change every week.
Q: What does it mean when the maturity rate is higher than the government borrowing requirement?
A: This means excess money is coming into the market. If the borrowing requirement is higher than the maturity, that shows the government needs more money. You also have to see the liquidity in the market. All this information is an important guide to make the correct investment decision.
Q: Where can an investor buy a TBill?
A: The government has appointed 18 primary dealers to trade TBills. There are 11 commercial banks and 7 non commercial banks.
Q: Can anybody go to any branch of these primary dealers to buy/sell their TBills?
A: Yes of course. All primary dealers having rural networks are committed to sell TBills. The access is there, but people especially in the rural areas are not using it.
Q: Does only the Head Office of these institutions issue TBills?
A: No. As part of broadbasing the TBill operations, Central Bank has instructed that all dealers having branches should deal with TBills. Even a farmer from Anuradhapura can go to the nearest primary dealer branch and buy a TBill.
Q: Can they cash it anywhere they want, at any branch?
A: Yes, anytime they want they can discount the bill prior to its maturity.
Q: How does someone go out and buy a TBill?
A: First of all, a minimum TBill issue is Rs. 10,000. The Central Bank reduced the amount to broadbase the TBill ownership. He can approach anyone of the primary dealers located islandwide and ask them to put a bid for a specific time period. As a bank customer he can go and ask what are the investment products available, and buy a TBill. As a primary dealer, if a bank refuses, then the bank is violating the purpose of issuing TBills. They should not be a primary dealer if they are not going to do that. The request must come from the investor.
The next step is, the investor should be aware of the risk reward structure. TBills have guilt edge security, it's like lending to the government, it's guaranteed by the government. Lending to government is the best anywhere in the world, it's the best security with nothing to worry. Liquidity is the next step. The problem is that, you should know when you are going to get your money back when you buy a TBill.
Q: Are the TBill rates higher than inflation?
A: Yes, the return is higher than inflation. The inflation this month is 10.3 per cent but a 12 month bill is sold for 13 per cent interest. Then you compare this with the existing bank fixed deposits and savings schemes as to what return you would get. First you must think of the risk you carry depending on the institution, then compare the liquidity with the savings and fixed deposits.
Q: What are the advantages of a TBill over a savings account?
A: A savings account permits only four withdrawals per month. If you withdraw more than four times you don't get an interest, ie no return on your investment. This means that your liquidity is restricted.
Q: What about fixed deposits?
A: Compared to bank fixed deposits, treasury bills are much more liquid. A commercial bank would penalise you by about 3-4 per cent if you withdraw your money prematurely. But such a loss never exists in TBills.
But in the case of TBills, if you have Rs. 100,000 deposits, you can take 10 certificates, you can also discount them at anytime. The primary dealers are expected to buy them back depending on the prevailing market rates. The return is much higher than bank deposits, so why not go for a TBill?
The entire process buying and selling TBills is very simple. Don't complicate things, it's just simple arithmetic.
Q: Are investors unaware of the benefits of a TBill to request to buy a bill?
A: Yes, there is a lack of awareness at grassroots levels. It's the duty of the dealers and the media to popularise it.
Banks may offer a lot of products. But it's up to the investor to decide what is suitable for him. If he is educated enough he would benefit from it. He should be able to pick and choose what he wants, without blaming anybody. The awareness has to be created.
