Labour Department Concerned About Non-Nationals Working Without Work Permits

A senior Labour officer has raised concerns about the violation of the labour code.

Phillip Mulcare says persons are working on the island without work permits.

He says the code requires that persons who are non-Montserratians to apply for permits before commencing their employment.

Mr. Mulcare says only OECS citizens are exempt from work permit requirements.

Mr. Mulcare was speaking on the Programme Labour and You.
