284 former locally engaged staff have opted for financial payments and 590 have had their applications rejected. The main reasons for the rejections were that the applicants had not been employed for the requisite 12 months' period; had not been employed as interpreters/translators or in similarly skilled or professional roles necessitating the regular use of written or spoken English; or had not been employed directly by the Government.
