Windhoek-based security company, TIA Security was yesterday busted by the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare, during a surprise visit at the 8de Laan settlement, for making 15 employees share a small shack.

 

The 15 men who live in the shack hail from the Tsitsabis area in Oshikoto Region and claim to have been brought to Windhoek by the company to work early this month.

 

The men whose ages range between 19 and 48 were visited by the Labour Minister, Doreen Sioka and her deputy, Alphaus Muheua. The minister warned the company owner, Albert Eiseb, of consequences should he not ensure the employees' decent accommodation, as provided for in the Labour Act with immediate effect.

 

As per Section 28 of the Labour Act No. 11 of 2007,  employers are obliged to provide employees who live at a place of employment or reside on any premises owned or leased by the employer, with adequate housing including sanitary and water facilities.

 

The shack in question belongs to a certain captain at TIA Security.
