THE Ministry of Labour continues to receive complaints from workers on the failure of their employers to give them their entitlements.
Speaking during a labour workshop in Labasa on Wednesday Minister for Labour Jone Usamate said these complaints included failure of employers to pay entitlements to employees.
Mr Usamate said the ministry's duty was to monitor this sort of illegal operation.
"Despite our warnings employers continue to deny their workers the money they deserve.
"If the law says to give workers their payment, then it is upon employers to see that this is carried out.
"At the end of the day this is being done for the sake of people and their employees because a happy worker will mean a more productive company."
Mr Usamate pleaded with employers to be loyal to their employees.
"Those failing to pay their employees will be taken to task.
"All workers in the country have powers to lodge their complaints through their labour unions.
"Any worker can bring his grievances to the labour unions that they are affiliate through.
"More importantly, we advise people to register their complaints and grievances with us, no matter where they work."
