A total of 34 workers of different nationalities at the SASOL oil company in Inhambane were suspended last week by the General Inspectorate of Labour (IGT) because they were found to be working illegally according to Mozambique’s employment of foreign workers regulations, a statement from the Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security reads.
The suspensions took place during a National Mining and Civil Construction Inspection Campaign which began on February 20 of this year after an IGT brigade in Inhambane visit the Sasol facilities in the district of Inhassoro.
The inspection revealed 34 foreign workers contravening regulations, 17 of whom were South African nationals. “Of this number, 6 workers, despite having submitted certificates of hiring under the quota system, did not meet the conditions for the exercise of their roles, since the company had already exhausted the quota to which it is legally entitled, hence they should have requested permission from the Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security, while the other 11 workers did not present any documents authorizing them to work in Mozambique at all,” the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security document reads.
Sasol said at the time that 10 of the 11 workers were working on a short-term basis and one as a service provider, but did not present any work permits enabling them to work in the country.
A further 17 workers without permits were identified at Sasol Petroleum Mozambique and immediately suspended. Those identified were of British, Iranian, Canadian, Brazilian, American and South African nationality.
