The Ministry of Labour And Social Security has indicated that it is a requirement for employers who might have declared some of the workers redundant due to economic challenges to make them a priority in an event the company recovers and wishes to employ more staff.
Labor Commissioner Chanda Kaziya explains that the new labour act provides that employees that are out of employment due to the financial struggles of the company be the first to return when need arise.
He adds that adhering to this requirement is important as it is one way to show that the company has sustainable intentions.
Kaziya was speaking during the stakeholder meeting in Lusaka.
