Posted: Thursday, March 19, 2020. 9:35 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Office of the Labour Commissioner, Ann Marie Thompson, says her Department is available and waiting to address concerns regarding employment in the time of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic.

Amid reports of workers being sent home and laid off by businesses whose work has dried up, the Department says, “it is very important that provisions of the Labour Act, Chapter 297, Revised Edition 2011 are adhered to by both employers and employees.”

Commissioner Thompson “encourages Belizeans to stand united in striving to collaborate and work together to foster good industrial relations to achieve the best outcomes for everyone during this global pandemic.”

The Department’s offices countrywide can be contacted for assistance, information or clarification concerning labour-related matter.
