HCM CITY— HCM City now has 15 public employment service centres and 82 companies providing services to help enterprises find workers.
If enterprises in the city need to recruit workers, they can contact those centres and companies, said Nguyễn Thị Nguyệt Ánh, deputy head of the employment-labour safety division of the Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.
She spoke at a dialogue between the city’s authorities and enterprises held on Wednesday.
The job service centres and companies publish information about recruitment needs on the website, and suitable candidates can be found or contacted.
The dialogue was held by the department in co-operation with Investment and Trade Promotion Center of HCM City to resolve difficulties related to policies on labour, employment, labour safety and vocational training. The aim was to help enterprises operate according to the law and ensure benefits for workers.
Enterprises at the meeting spoke about their problems with administrative and regulatory procedures of the department’s divisions.
Nguyễn Quốc Việt, head of the employment-labour safety division, said that compensation would be paid by the employer if a work-related incident caused a serious injury.
Injured workers will also receive a monthly allowance from social insurance, and will be reassigned to another position, depending on their health needs.
Trần Ngọc Sơn, the department’s deputy head, said many policies were in place to assist small- and medium-sized enterprises.
These enterprises, for instance, receive half off the price for state-sponsored training courses on starting businesses and for vocational training courses for their employees.
Female owners of small- and medium-sized enterprises are entitled to these services for free.
At the meeting, the department told enterprises to compile reports about labour accidents as well as labour hygiene and safety, which will be used as references in bidding procedures and if the city’s interdisciplinary inspection team visits a company. —VNS
