BEIRUT: Measures will be taken against employees of an EDL service provider if they don’t abide by operating hours or are absent from their shifts, the company warned in a statement Thursday.

KVA SAL, a company performing maintenance operations on behalf of EDL, urged its employees to "head to all work stations without delay," saying they must abide by working hours and fulfill their job requirements.

Contract workers have been holding protests and preventing EDL employees from entering the firm's headquarters in Beirut, with the state-run company saying that their protest was disrupting much-needed maintenance work.

According to a statement released by KVA SAL Thursday, the company reserved the right to take measures against anyone in violation of Lebanese law and internal company policy.

The company also warned that any individual threatening KVA property and policy would be held "fully accountable."

Meanwhile, ministers accused EDL protesters of occupying a state-owned institution, in a Cabinet meeting held Thursday.

The condemnation was made irrespective of the protester’s cause, said the ministers, who stressed the need to swiftly resolve the case.
