MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20: Do you know anyone violating their work permit terms?

Government wants you to phone the Immigration hotline to report abuse.

Minister for Economy, Trade and Industry Patrice Minors said the Immigration hotline is in operation and people should call 296-5202 if they know of any violations.

Ms Minors said: “Any infractions against the Immigration and Protection Act are always a concern, and so in an effort to ensure that such occurrences are kept at a minimum, I want to encourage those members of the public who are aware of any violations to please call our hotline and share their information.

“Upon receipt of the information, the appropriate action will be taken.”

Minister Minors also reminded employers of their obligation to make sure their payroll tax is paid in a timely manner.

“Employers and employees have certain obligations with respect to the payment of Social Insurance contributions, hospital levy, employment tax and medical insurance.

“I therefore deem it important to remind employers of the importance of being in compliance with their financial responsibilities as it pertains to their employees.”

She was also looking forward to Thursday’s Construction Job Fair at the Bermuda College.

Minister Minors urged Bermudians who are professionals in the construction industry and who are currently unemployed to attend the upcoming event.

So far, nearly two dozen industry businesses and employers have signed up to participate in this week’s event.

Minister Minors said: “It’s our number one priority to get Bermudians back to work. So I'm hoping that we see as many construction professionals come out this Thursday to the job fair. I expect there to be some very tangible employment opportunities for those displaced workers.”

Thursday’s Construction Job Fair will take place at the Bermuda College Gymnasium from 10am to 3pm.

For more information the public can call: 292-3700.
