Brits at Guardian US given poorer employment terms

The paper wants to give employees US-style contracts, according to The Telegraph, which reported that senior British employees are opting to return home. The contracts are said to be offering worse sick pay and notice period rights.

It follows reports that The Guardian’s US arm is laying off staff after reportedly running up losses of $15.8m while only bringing in $15.5m in revenue for the year to April 2016, according to Politico.

The paper, which is online only in the US, dropped its revenue forecast for this year to about $20m, having previously thought it would hit $32m.

The Guardian declined to comment.
