Human Resources (HR) and administration officials have denied charges of malpractice and mistreatment made by two AUC employees.
Shireen Fareed, a senior HR manager, was let go after 35 days of employment at AUC in what she says was unfair dismissal.
The AUC alumna, who had 12 years of multinational HR experience, said she was disappointed to find incongruities in hiring and financial remuneration policies in her department. On September 23, she sought to resign on ethical grounds after raising these concerns to her superiors.
A stark increase in traffic congestion at AUC’s gates and parking areas has prompted administrative officials to look for quick alternatives.
Last week, Brian MacDougall, the vice-president for Planning and Administration suggested in an email sent to the AUC community that Gates 2, 4, or 5 be used as pick up and drop off locations diverting traffic from Gate 1.
