What is the change? The Labor Inspectorate of Maputo has levied a fine of almost 7 million meticais (about US $110,000) against Maputo International College for employing 34 foreign workers, including directors, teachers and accountants, who lacked the proper work authorization.
What does the change mean? The fines are a reminder to all employers in Mozambique to make sure that they are in compliance with immigration laws and that foreign employees have valid and appropriate work authorization.
Background: The Maputo Labor Inspectorate announced the fine against recently opened Maputo International College after it suspended 34 foreign employees of the school for working without the proper work permits in violation of regulations governing the hiring of foreign nationals. The employees included staff members of various nationalities including Cameroon, Ghana, Lebanon, the Philippines and Zimbabwe.
BAL Analysis: Businesses are reminded that labor authorities are authorized to conduct inspections, suspend workers and levy significant fines against organizations that employ foreign nationals without proper work authorization.
