Speak-English-only memo ‘sent in error’ to staff at Gaeltacht company

An internal memo instructing employees at a healthcare manufacturing and R&D plant in the Donegal Gaeltacht that they must speak English while at work was sent “in error” the company has said.

The memo, dated April 15th, told staff working at the Randox Teoranta plant in An Clochán Liath that “English must be spoken at all times in the workplace”.

It added that “it is essential” that staff at the company “communicate, both written and verbally, in English at all times”.

“Failing to do so is not acceptable.”

A statement issued by Randox, a company that provides clinical diagnostics for laboratories, said the communication regarding the use of English in the workplace was sent in error and has now been withdrawn.

Randox Teoranta remains “fully engaged and committed to the community of An Clochán Liath and west Donegal in general,” the statement said.
