THIS WEEK IN THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY
The Minister for Minister for Labour and Human Resources Development, Ms. Idith Alexander will address the following concerns during this week’s question time period: the possibility of improved compensation for stevedores; construction companies withholding employee salaries over unreasonable lengths of time; mechanisms in place to ensure decent working conditions, e.g. to ensure correct disbursement of minimum salary compensation; reasons behind the great disparity of jobseekers statistics between that of the Ministry and the National Statistics bureau and also, online training opportunities for career development and progression.
Additionally, the Agriculture & Fisheries (Incentives) (Repeal) Bill, 2014, has been tabled to the House for second reading. If approved, it will repeal the Agricultural and Fisheries (Incentives) Act, 2005.
