News : Qualfon Visit by Ministry Unearths Poor Facilities, Health and Safety Issues
Georgetown, Guyana, Dec 18, 2015 -- Qualfon employees spoke out about inadequate facilities and poor safety measures, when Minister within the Ministry of Social Protection Simona Broomes and a team visited their Goedverwagting, East Coast Demerara worksite.
Broomes, under whose mandate labour matters fall, engaged staff at the different levels of the call centre separately.
Among the issues raised were junior staff being allotted a 25-minute lunch break by the company. This the minister cited to be a breach of the laws of Guyana, which stipulate an hour for lunch in the Labour Act.
