Labour Inspector Dulcie Bramble is one of eighteen Labour Inspection Officers from the Departments of Labour in St. Kitts, Nevis and Montserrat who are participating in a three-day workshop in Bassetterre.

The session is designed to strengthen their capacity to successfully carry out their duties. 

The main role of a Labour Inspection Officer is to assess compliance with labour legislation; acquire and provide information and counselling to workers, and representatives of employers and employees on labour legislation issues; and conciliation, mediation and resolution of conflicts that may arise in the world of work. 

The May 23 to 25 Labour Inspection Training Workshop is facilitated by Rainer Pritzer, Senior Specialist in Labour Administration and Social Dialogue with the International Labour Organization (ILO) Decent Work Team in the Office for the Caribbean.

Topics to be covered include labour inspection issues with emphasis on working conditions including wages, maternity and family, employment discrimination, violence at work, and inspection of working conditions.

Sessions on employment relationship, the inspection visit, and gender and equality issues will also be held, as well as occupational safety and health, and ethical behaviour.
