Philipsburg, Sint Maarten — The Labour Department will be returning to the library this year to provide an information session about labour law, as a part of the Power of Knowledge series. This will be an informative and in-depth lecture and interactive discussion on Sint Maarten labor law by Nikima Groeneveldt-Hickinson, Policy Advisor at the Department of Labor and supporting staff of the labour department. This session will take place on Thursday the 26th of May, at 6:30 pm.
Are you fully informed about your rights as an employer or an employee? Do you know what the labor laws are that exist on Sint Maarten? If you would like to know more about what the labor laws are and how they apply to you in your situation then you should attend the first Power of Knowledge session of this year. Under the slogan “Know your rights”, the Labour Department of the Government of Sint Maarten will provide an interactive lecture and discussion about this topic. The Power of knowledge session will start off with an introduction by Labour Department policy advisor Mrs. Nikima Groeneveldt-Hickinson, which will inform you about all aspects of labour law. Following will be an interactive question and answer session in which the audience can take part. Some of the topics that will be discussed during this Power of Knowledge session will be workers’ rights and responsibilities, the types of work contracts, dismissal, overtime and holiday compensations, and much more.
A person that does not know their own rights and responsibilities as a worker or employee does not have sufficient control over their own destiny. Take this opportunity to empower yourself with knowledge at the Power of Knowledge lectures where experts will be on hand to inform you and answer any questions you may have.
All are invited to attend this informative lecture and discussion on labor law at the Philipsburg Jubilee Library. For any questions please call ms. Joy Lambert at the library tel. 542 2970.
