Tbilisi, Georgia, June 7
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgia is creating an inspectorate for labor protection, according to Paata Zhorzholiani, Director of the Labor and Employment Policy Department at Georgia's Labor, Health and Social Affairs Ministry.
Zhorzholiani told reporters on June 7 that a special working group is already engaged in creation of the inspectorate.
The group includes representatives from various authorities of the country.
He went on to add that the working group also includes a representative from the International Labor Organization (ILO).
"All countries have a labour inspectorate," Zhorzholiani said. "The country's former government abolished both the labor legislation and the executive structure. Under the new government's decision, the country has already established a service for supervision of working conditions in order to provide safe labor conditions and respect for labor legislation."
Zhorzholiani also added that the new inspectorate will regulate all matters of labor law, including those related to vacations and overtime payment.
