The National Superintendence of Labor Inspection (Sunafil) reminded businessmen and employers that they must comply with the timely payment of wages to their workers. Otherwise, they could be fined up to S / 120,152 for being a serious infraction.
The amount may vary depending on the size of the company and the number of workers affected. It should be remembered that, last weekend, in the district of Surquillo, a crane operator decided to hang from it. The reason was that the company for which he works did not comply with the payment of his remuneration.
When this fact became known, through social networks, Sunafil took the case ex officio and opened an investigation against the Perumaq SAC Corporation, the worker’s employer, and contacted the affected person. Within 30 business days, The inspection will determine the breaches in the social and labor rights of the operator, as well as those of his other colleagues.
