William Hill Share Price

William Hill’s share price was -4.1p at 224.7p Wednesday as executives from the company tried desperately to quash an uprising in its Tel Aviv Internet support centre.

The company issued a statement on Tuesday that several higher-ups at that office would receive disciplinary action for suggesting to employees they were either being relocated to the company’s Gibraltar office or that their jobs might ultimately be disposed of altogether.  More than 200 of the Tel Aviv employees abandoned their jobs as a result of this news.

William Hill said in its statement that “senior William Hill online management are currently on the ground in Tel Aviv working through these issues."

The company also insisted they were fully committed to the Tel Aviv office:  “The vast majority of employees of the marketing team in Tel Aviv have good working relationships with the business and with colleagues across William Hill Online,” the company said today. “William Hill Online is committed to its sales and online marketing operation in Tel Aviv and contrary to media reports has no intention of relocating this operation.”
