Security Companies Want New Legislation

Security companies say a new legislation to protect them is needed.

The president of the Fiji Islands Security Employers Association [FISEA], Viliame Raqio, said the Minimum Wage Decree indicated there was a concern from the Government regarding the security industry.

“The decree only oversees the welfare of the employees but there’s nothing about the employers; the security companies,” he said.

Mr Raqio has urged Government to formulate a separate legislation covering the industry alone.

He said this legislation must include the following:

  • Personal security;
  • Government properties;
  • Embassy’s and High Commission offices and residents;
  • Banks;
  • Industries;
  • Building constructions;
  • Manufacturers;
  • Municipalities;
  • Educational institutions;
  • Other industries; and
  • Private properties and business.
