The State Labour Inspectorate ordered for payment of annual leave pay in a textile factory in Stip 27 September 2017
The State Labour Inspectorate – Regional Unit Stip made a decision ordering the manager of the Company for Manufacturing and Trade ZOGORI export-import DOO Stip to pay its employees annual leave pay. Following a complaint filed by the Helsinki Committee, the state labour inspector from the regional inspectorate unit performednon-scheduled inspection oversight at the stated factory and found that the employer failed to pay its workers annual leave pay for 2016. The decision made by the state inspector imposing obligation to the employer to correct this irregularity proscribes a 30 day deadline for payment of outstanding annual leave pay. We welcome this decision of the State Labour Inspectorate – Regional Unit Stip and the proactive approach and commitment of the state inspector in charge of this case. The Helsinki Committee will continue in the future to monitor this case in terms of whether the employer acted upon the decision of the State Labour Inspectorate for payment of annual leave pay for 2016 to its workers.
