Labour Department on inspection drive
The Department of Labour is making site visits to tourism businesses in Cape Town.
Susanne Faussner-Ringer, Managing Director of Greenways Hotel and Ashton’s Restaurant, informed Cape Town Tourism that an inspector had visited her hotel in Claremont on November 13, 2009.
“[The inspector] interviewed staff, looked at all the contracts, pay slips, clock cards and attendance registers,” said Faussner-Ringer.
In the hour-and-a-half inspection, the inspector “also checked details such as the date of the last inspection of the fire extinguisher, the contents of the first aid kit and that the basic conditions of employment were displayed”.
