Severance payment ordered for former employees of defunct newspaper El Nacional de Machala, in Ecuador

"In August 2023, newspaper El Nacional of [the southern Ecuadoran city] Machala, founded in 1964, ceased publication. After the closure of the newspaper, 27 former employees and retired workers did not receive their severance payments, nor answers from the shareholders. Now, with a ruling of the [regulatory body] Superintendency of Companies, the company that owned the newspaper can be dissolved, so the former workers can be paid what is owed to them.

[...] The Superintendency established a two-month term for former employees to present documents that prove the company's debt so that they can receive the payment owed to them under the law."
