The bar examining examiners who were supposed to examine Njeldjem’s bar workers on Thursday said the workers were not competent to perform the job.
They also found no evidence that they were paid for their work and said they had no training in the field of bar management.
“There was no evidence of any type of knowledge in the process, and that was a huge concern for us,” said the Bar Examining Officers Association (BEA).
“We were very disappointed in the way they were going about it.”
Nj Bar workers’ lawyer, Lianne Deane, said the examiners were not aware of Njendjem and her family’s history.
“The bar examinees were given very little information about the family, the history of the family and the circumstances of the case, and then we were told the bar examinners would do a thorough check on the people,” Deane said.
“So, they were told to come back with a report, which was a lie.”
The bar and hospitality workers’ union called the investigation a waste of time.
“If they were really concerned about the welfare of their bar staff, they would have taken them into confidence and they should have done a thorough background check and made sure they were qualified,” union president Tony Roussos said.
Njeldjo’s lawyer said the bar staff had been given little time to prepare for the exam.
“We understand that there is a lot of concern in Njelda’s family and she is in a very vulnerable situation,” he said.
“I think that the bar should have known who they were dealing with.”
The Bar Examiners Association said it was the first time they had heard of Nj Bar, which is known for its low pay and poor working conditions.
Njbar has been operating since 1995.
It employs about 100 people, but about 40 of those are employees from Njelde’s family.
