Water Authority of Fiji chief executive Opetaia Ravai says, New Delhi company Technofab is conducting its work in-accordance with the relevant laws of the country.
However, Ravai says, the Indian company along with other contractors – contracted by the Authority, are being reminded to strictly adhere to rules that governs workers they employ.
The Water Authority had demanded from Technofab details on FNPF deductions for its workers after FBC News revealed, that Chinese company – China Railway 5, also contracted by W.A.F, wasn’t paying FNPF for its workers.
Technofab is hired by the Water Authority to upgrade the sewerage system at the Laucala Bay and Domain areas in Suva.
“According to what they’ve told us they’re complying and they’re learnt from what’s covered in the media about china railways. I’m sure they are on to it. If there are other things not only FNPF there are other provisions of the ERP they need to comply with the terms of payment of allowances and things like that we’ve highlighted that to them to all the contractors.”
