Alden McLaughlin is calling for qualified individuals to come forward to sit on Labour Tribunals for Grand Cayman.
The Minister’s appeal follows recent media exposure of the issue, which suggests it is becoming increasingly difficult to appoint suitable candidates to serve on these boards, said a GIS press release.
There are six Labour Tribunals in Grand Cayman, and one in Cayman Brac.
‘The Labour Tribunals are a vital public service, which the government is committed to making available,’ said Mr. McLaughlin, who has Ministerial responsibility for the Department of Employment Relations.
‘I strongly urge suitably qualified individuals to consider the value they could add to the community by serving on its board, and invite them to make their interest known as soon as possible.’
Candidates typically suited to a role on Labour Tribunals are those who possess a solid grounding in legal affairs.
However, the Ministry is also keen to attract Caymanians who are willing to demonstrate an interest in local employment issues, particularly mature individuals of the community who might possess a valuable wealth of local knowledge and insight.
