RESPONDS TO MR. DEAN GREENAWAY
The H. Lavity Stoutt Community College has issued the following statement in
response to recent claims made by Mr. Dean Greanaway, which were widely reported
in the local media:
The Board of Governors and the administration of the H. Lavity Stoutt Community
College (HLSCC) are reluctant to bring into a public arena matters relating to
terms and conditions of employment of personnel.
However, the recent public demand by Mr. Dean Greenway, for the college to make
payment of monies not due to him, requires some response in the public interest.
Mr. Dean Greenway was seconded to the HLSCC from the Public Service with effect
from May 1, 1999. His secondment to HLSCC did not change his status as a
substantive employee of the Public Service, nor did the abolition of the post,
which he held at HLSCC, change his substantive status as an employee in the
Public Service. Mr. Dean Greenway was at all times aware that his substantive
employer was the Public Service of the British Virgin Islands, hence his return
to direct active employment in the Public Service effective August 1, 2005.
Mr. Dean Greenway’s insistence that he be paid severance pay by the HLSCC,
effective from May 1, 1999 to July 31, 2005, is therefore without merit and
would amount to a misuse of public funds, as his substantive employment in the
Public Service was in no way affected by the abolition of his post at the HLSCC.
