Skills Development Programme

Skills Development Programme was introduced in 2010 with the aim to train young jobseekers between the ages of 18 – 30 years who are having difficulties to secure employment. The Programme enhances them with capacity building and retrains them in new areas so as to reduce the skills gap with the view to enable them to enter the labour market. The programme combines on-the-job and off-the-job training for a period of 6 months-18 months resulting in trainees gaining a certificate and mostly being absorbed into full employment upon successful completion of the programme.


Remuneration while on SDP

  • The trainee receives a monthly allowance between SR. 2500-SR. 3000 for the duration of the training.
  • Bus Pass
  • Daycare Assistance of SR. 500 if meet requirement.


Prosecution unit


The Prosecution Unitprovides prosecution assistance for the Labour Inspectors and Competent Officers within the Employment
Department whenever there has been a breach of the Employment Laws or non compliance with the decision of the Minister, that of the
Competent Officer or Labour Inspector.


Our mission is to provide highly competent and professional prosecution services for the Employment Department and to fairly, effectively and efficiently enforce the Employment Legislations of the Republic of Seychelles.




The Prosecution Unit receives its files to initiate legal actions from primary sources which are the Labour Inspectors and
Competent Officers whereby a party being either the employer or employee has breached the laws governing employment.

The Unit seeks authorization to prosecute any case from the Chief Executive which is assented in a certificate. The Charges
and summons are then drafted based on the alleged offence submitted before the cases are filed before the Magistrate
Court or the Employment Tribunal. Subsequent to the filing of the cases, the Court or Tribunal provides the Prosecution
unit with dates for the cases to be called. The Prosecution Unit ensures that the cases are heard and a ruling is given to
bring an end to the matters or that an out of court agreement is achieved.



Some of the offences that are interpreted as criminal offences before the court:

  • Failing to comply with the direction of the Competent Officer.
  • Failing to comply with the decision of the Minister.
  • Failing to initiate and comply with the Negotiation Procedure.
  • An employer who fails to pay an employee or trainee an allowance or mandatory wage less than the national minimum wage.
  • An employer who fails to provide an employee with any applicable condition of employment prescribed under the Employment Legislations.
