Hearts of Oak dragged to High Court over breach of contract

Former Hearts of Oak Commercial Affairs Manager Charles Kwarteng has taken the Ghanaian giants to the High Court in Accra, requesting compensation for breach of contract.

Kwarteng has filed a lawsuit against the Accra giants at the Adjabeng Court, requesting a slew of benefits.

In his endeavor to cleanse his record and collect outstanding entitlements dating back to 2019, the former senior official is leaving no stone uncovered.

He took the club to the Ghana FA, but the association’s Player Status Committee refused to rule on charges that Mr. Kwarteng’s employment contract with the club was not certified.

Infuriated by the decision, the club’s former Commercial Affairs Manager has taken the matter to the Accra High Court in what is sure to be a high-stakes legal battle.

He wants his unpaid wage for the month of August 2021, as well as his unpaid fuel allowance for 17 of the 24 months he worked for the club.

He’s also seeking reimbursement for the use of his personal vehicle for official responsibilities, which the club neglected to reimburse him for as per his job contract.

Mr. Kwarteng also wants his unpaid salaries from 2019, as well as the payment of his statutory Tier 2 contributions, which have been in arrears for 24 months.

The former top official is also seeking compensation for the shock he experienced as a result of the club’s arbitrary announcement of his position.

Kwarteng was appointed in 2019 as the General Manager, Commercial and Merchandising, but upon taking office, his title was changed to Chief Commercial Officer.

After Hearts of Oak won the double last season, he resigned from the position and has since filed a case with the FA requesting his entitlements from the Phobians.
