Ring of Honor has been leading by example when it comes to providing security for their workers throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Many people around the world have faced financial hardship recently due to the strain placed on world markets by the quarantines and shutdowns enacted by various governments.
Thankfully, some organisations have either allowed their staff to work full time from home or have gone out of their way to look after their people. It seems that one of these companies is Ring of Honor.
Reports surfaced from PWInsider back in April that ROH had paid all the participants of the canceled Quest for Gold Tournament in full.
The company took this altruistic approach one stage further by paying all talent the money they should have earned for contracted dates despite the numerous cancellations. This included talent that had been signed but hadn’t debuted yet, talent that were scheduled to appear but weren’t under contract, and all of their staff (from producers to ring crew).
According to a new report from Fightful Select ROH has also not extended worker’s contracts for the time they were inactive and instead treated them as if they’d been performing their scheduled dates.
The company also made the decision to set up a bubble for its talent in Baltimore, MD to keep them safe while they trained and prepared for TV tapings. It seems that ROH has taken extreme measures throughout 2020 in an effort to secure the health and happiness of its workers and ensure the future stability of the company.
Meanwhile, the company has also re-signed Mark Haskins.
