The Zambia Federation for Employers (ZFE) says employers in the country have no option but to implement the new minimum wage following the dismissal of its legal challenge by the High court.
ZFE Executive Director Harrington Chibanda has since advised employers to ensure that there is industrial harmony.
Mr. Chibanda says the court ruling was very clear stating that there is no need for confrontation over the revised minimum wages.
The federation had challenged government over its decision to issue statutory instruments to increase the minimum wages but the Lusaka high court ruled that labour minister Fackson Shamenda was within the law when he announced the new minimum wages.
Speaking to QFM News, Mr. Chibanda says the federation is now looking forward to seeing enhanced dialogue between employers and employees.
well then we do not need ZFE in the country. what do they do apart from getting money from companies and hosting silly workshops.
Is Mr Liato now part of the ZFE?
Minimum wage is even less than the cost of living 2de, if yo employer pays u less better find means of rewarding yoself. Some employers are too stingy and selfish. Infact govt shud ensure that noone is getting below the minimum wage… Apa PF peena u did well to raise the minimum wage…
Fantastic move move, our govts is at work.
thanks our workers you will get something now
ZFE and UNIONS, you have no purpose. You just stealing employees contributions. I urge workers to take up upon themselves like what the SA Minors and others workers did to increase their salaries. No more slave wages.
Who do you represent? Busy enjoying allowances and yet you fight those that want employees to be paid better!
May the judgement over minimum wage between zfe vs govt by the lusaka high court be published on this blogg
