THE Department of Employment and Labour’s Butterworth Labour Centre moved to new premises last week.
The long-awaited move has been overdue, as the labour centre was renting a building in a secluded area of Butterworth which was not easily accessible to the public. The new building, which is 100% disability friendly and compliant in terms Occupational Health and Safety standards, was handed over by the Department of Public Works in August 2021.
The address for the new premises is Erf 9369, corner of Blyth and Robinson streets, Butterworth.
The Department of Employment and Labour remains committed in providing all its services; such as inspection and enforcement services, which has inspectors who are responsible for enforcing compliance with labour legislation; Public Employment Services, which assists work seekers with employment opportunities; Unemployment Insurance Fund, responsible for UIF claims and Compensation Fund, a unit that assists with injuries and diseases on duty.
The Butterworth Labour Centre is operating every weekday, from Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 16:00.
