New requirement

Salaseini Moceiwai
Wednesday, April 30, 2014

SUBcontractors will soon be required to provide their services at a rate that allows contractors or companies to pay at least equivalent to the national minimum wage rate.

And this will be in place once the implementation of the national minimum wage rate is gazetted by the government soon.

Labour Minister Jone Usamate said such a wage rate had been agreed to but yet to be gazetted.

"Say for instance, if you are subcontracting your security services to a security company, you should at least subcontract at a rate that allows the company to pay at least the required minimum wage rate," Mr Usamate said.

"For a security company, the national minimum wage rate is $2.41."
