A federal government employee debt due to failure of Phoenix is finally able to keep her home, the bank having agreed to give him a respite.

“I can continue to stay in my home!” lance, relieved, Beatrice Brown, a servant of the greater Montreal area.

The Journal revealed last week, the story of the professional who accumulates the problems of payroll with Phoenix since the end of the year 2017. Off work due to illness, the employee received no pay for three months, since Phoenix did not issue the document necessary for his application for unemployment.
