The China Railway 5 Company is under surveillance by the Fiji National Provident Fund for allegedly failing to make superannuation contributions to its local employees.
The Chinese company is contracted by the Water Authority of Fiji to upgrade water and sewerage plants.
FNPF has confirmed that Inspectors from the Fund visited the company’s office following complaints from employees.
A statement says Directors of China Railway 5 have been advised about the process of submission of wages records for its employees.
Chinese Officials at the company office in Domain, Suva could only tell FBC News the company is treating this as a big issue and referred all questions to their General Manager who is away overseas.
FNPF has warned that those who don’t comply will be dealt with according to the law inclusive of court actions and the imposition of penalties.
The Fund is encouraging employers to comply with laws and ensure its employees contributions are paid on time.
