ICBHR– At least 1,100 employees in Tehran have been laid off after the employers and contractors failed to pay wages.
Iran’s economic plight led owners to expel about 1,100 employees- who worked in chain restaurants in Tehran- amid a broader CoronaVirus outbreak in the country.
The short-term lockdown and restrictions, and nationwide panic disorder because of COVID-19 forced people to stay at homes, directly affecting the lame-duck economy.
Further, Tehran municipality laborers have not been paid for months, state-run ISNA quoting the city council.
