ANGOLA: LABOUR/ANGOP/9/11/17 SABANews 1
LUANDA – The ANGOLA Labour General Inspection has collected fines from at least 187 companies charged with a variety of irregularities within the THIRD QUARTER of this year.
National news agency, ANGOP says Labour Ministry Inspector General NZINGA NGOLA has revealed the information in the capital, LUANDA.
It quotes the official as saying hundreds of other firms had their tickets cancelled after they corrected their anomalies within the deadlines given.
Mr NGOLA says sectors found with the highest number of infringements are trade, with ONE-THOUSAND-685; services, 644; hotels and tourism, 247; industry, 236; construction, 156; and health, 67.
He says others are education, with 43; transports, 24; agriculture, 16; and finance, 13; with offences ranging from non-registration of workers with the National Social Security Institute to lack of regular medical exams.
Other firms were guilty of salary payment delays, lack of insurance against accidents at work and professional illnesses, irregular work schedules, and tampering with workers’ holiday rights.
Economic experts say ANGOLA, the SEVENTH-largest state in AFRICA, experienced high growth rates in the last decade despite its violent history, and the General Labour Law aims to address the most recent labour market demands./Sabanews/cam
