SECURITY companies in the country were reminded that providing inappropriate workplaces for their workers was against the law.
The reminder from Labour Minister Jone Usamate follows concerns raised by a Savusavu security officer on how his employer failed to provide a decent workplace for him over the past four years.
Such concerns were among other issues disclosed to Mr Usamate during a public consultation in Savusavu early this week.
"For security companies, the national minimum wage rate is $2.41 per hour.
"Securities are also entitled to 10 days of sick leave with medical certificate and annual leave.
"They also should be given meal allowances when they work overtime among other entitlements.
"Most of all, they should be given the decent workplace and treated fairly.
"This will only then, allow productivity in the workforce.
"We have laws in place that cover the working environment for workers in the country.
"Our team will be hard at work to investigate all complaints regarding security companies and other labour-related issues in the North."
