Lasco Defends Job Offer Made to Trench Town Hero - Tremayne Brown

Lasco has defended an employment offer it made to Trench Town hero Tremayne Brown after he reportedly criticised the terms of the deal and said he felt corporate Jamaica had reneged on promises made to him immediately after he saved a little boy from drowning several months ago.

Brown reportedly claimed in a media interview that he was offered a menial role at Lasco while being prevented from seeking employment elsewhere - allegations which have been refuted by the company.

After receiving backlash on social media, Lasco responded in a news release late Thursday.

The company said the Trench Town hero was offered an opportunity to fill one of two roles at Lasco Distributors — as a promoter or as an inventory clerk.

Both positions were offered on a contract basis and offered a fixed salary and flexible work days, the company said, further explaining that "it is common practice for staff and contractors not to seek employment with direct competitors" and that "there is no restriction on non-competitive employment."

Lasco said it engaged Brown and his representative in an in-person meeting to outline the offers, however, it said Brown turned down the offer to pursue other opportunities.

"We have great respect for Tremayne and his heroic actions; and stand behind our job offers to him if he changes his mind.  He deserves a second chance at a successful life and we wish him all the best," expressed Catherine Goodall, Lasco marketing manager, beverages.

Official Statement

Brown, who received a Badge of Honour for Gallantry last month, reportedly said that he felt companies only used him to gain from the national spotlight on him.

Having been deported from the United Kingdom earlier this year, Brown had been struggling to regain his footing locally before his heroic act resulted in him being showered with offers.
