The Department of Labour in Rufunsa District has expressed concern over the continued casualization of labour in the area.
Rufunsa District Labour Inspector, Kennedy Nalili who conducted a special inspection on some private institutions in the area expressed disappointment that workers at one of the private schools have been working for more than four years on contracts which are renewed every year.
Mr. Nalili said such contracts were a form of casualization which Government does not condone hence assured the workers that the Department of Labour will soon seek audience with management to clarify some of the issues pertaining to their contracts.
And workers in the district have commended the department for embarking on labour inspections to educate them on conditions of service and other labour matters.
The workers who sought anonymity for fear of been victimized by their employers implored the department to continue with their inspections so that employers are acquainted with labour laws of the country.
Mr. Nalili assured the workers that the department will play its mandate of ensuring that the Labour force in the country is protected.
