The RCN Unit of Social Affairs and Labor (SZW) met with stakeholders on Saba and St. Eustatius on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The meetings were held in the form of workshops for entrepreneurs and dealt with the following subjects; labor affairs, the labor market, reimbursement, work and residency permit and collective wage sheet. The objective of this workshop was to offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to receive firsthand information regarding the labor processes and to pose questions they may have regarding labor and employment matters.
The representatives of the Unit of Social Affairs and Labor were joined by colleagues from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND), the Tax Office (BCN) and the Labor Mediator for St. Eustatius and Saba, Mr. Rafael Boasman. On Statia the department of labor also participated. On Saba some fifteen business operators were in attendance.
On St. Eustatius the participation was registered at thirty companies.
Head of RCN Unit of Social Affairs and Labor, Margreth, de Groot is very pleased with the involvement of entrepreneurs on both islands. “I am happy we did this in the form of a workshop and together with other relevant partners such as IND, the Labor Mediator and the Tax Office. Participants were offered a one stop for information because all the agencies dealing with the labor processes were seated in the same room”. In November Social Affairs and Employment will hold similar workshops on both islands with the focus on labor inspection procedures.
