The Inspectorate-General for Labour (IGT), in Maputo city, has put a stop to the activities of a bogus labour inspector in the Mozambican capital, Maputo.
The man, Isaú Bernardo, now in police custody, was turned in by Electro Cruz, company located in Avenida do Trabalho in the capital.
According to a press release from the Department of Labour, Employment and Social Security (MITESS), the man, an INSS trainee, stole the identification card of a senior IGT inspector and used it to carry out his activities.
“Isaú Bernardo carried out his activities posing as a member of the Inspectorate General of Labour,” the statement read, adding that the accused had no contractual relationship with MITESS and had never been part of the IGT.
The General Inspectorate of Labour received a complaint from Electro Cruz about an inspection action being carried out by only one person, which the firm found strange since labour inspections usually involve at least two inspectors.
The press release reiterates a warning to companies that all accredited labour inspectors have identification cards with individual numbers that owners or managers of companies can request to see before any inspection and can verify them with Labour Administration Services.Source: AIM / Folha de Maputo
