Papua New Guinea.
What do you mean what choice of jurisdiction ?
Terms stated in his agreement are his salary, housemary expenses, food allowances, lodging, airfare for him and spouse, paid holidays (1 month),
Gratuity or Finishing Pay (the term used in PNG for the locals) is not stated, but it was given to all expats employed before him and to 2 expats who left but returned to work for the company again.
1 shareholder who objected (an ex-lawyer) claimed that as gratuity is non obligatory, therefore the company will not grant it to my husband.
Another shareholder whom we met 2 days ago puts it that if we can help the company reclaimed some
money that a previous MD claimed in excess, then they would consider giving gratuity to my husband.
Thank you for your help. perhaps I think I should end my request for legal assistance.
