A HOTEL has said it was experiencing ‘hell on earth’ after a leaked email appearing to show a hitlist of employees potentially facing the sack was posted on Twitter.
On Thursday night the email – appearing to be from a hotel boss – appeared on the social networking site under the hotel’s Twitter account name.
The email – seemingly sent on November 25 last year – is titled ‘staffing’ and appears to list possible savings the hotel could make from “taking out” staff that are “non-productive”. It lists five employees whose names are all blanked out.
A link to the email was tweeted with the message saying ‘Who do you think we should sack from this list of employees then guys?’.
On Friday a spokesman for Rossett Hall Hotel said the ‘confidential information’ had been hacked and that none of it was published with the hotel’s knowledge.
They had informed the North Wales Police.
“At the moment it has been hell on earth for all concerned,” the spokesman said.
“We are waiting for a response from the police as we have lost control of the Twitter account.
“Confidential information is out there, someone has accessed the emails, because no information is coming from the hotel.”
On Friday the post had been re-tweeted more than 200 times.
The published email also revealed the weekly wages and roles of the five unnamed employees and said axing them could cut its average weekly wage bill by 32 per cent.
A North Wales Police spokesman confirmed the hotel had reported an apparent ‘hack’, and that they were given advice.
Hotel bosses were in the process of trying to get the Twitter account removed.
