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


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.

 

ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES

 

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.
