Guam - The Guam Department of Labor wrapped-up its Labor Law Compliance Conference this week. Hundreds attended the three-day event to hear from experts like OSHA compliance inspector Rajkumar Sundrum on the latest with employee rights. "We are trying to make sure people avoid penalties because the penalties have gone up much more so we are trying to make sure people are not subjected to high fines, to take advantage of compliance assistant program to focus on prevention," he explained.

Participants also included several visitors who were interested in learning the do's and don'ts of running a business, such as CNMI DOL administrative services manager Barbara Sablan. She said, "The main focus of the CNMI is to take a look on the workforce to place in citizens to be able to be employed before we go abroad and bring in H-2 workers into the CNMI."
