A 10-15 percent wage increase has been proposed for Fiji's ten employment sectors.

The ten sectors include Printing Trades, Wholesale & Retail Trades, Hotel and Catering Trades, Garment Industry, Sawmilling and Logging Industry, Road Transport, Building and Civil and Electrical Engineering Trades, Manufacturing Industry, Mining and Quarrying Industry and Security Services.

Under section 56 (1) of the Employment Relations Promulgation (ERP) 2007, an employer is required to display the written notice of the proposed wage increase in their workplace informing the workers of the increase.  

These notices can be obtained from the various Ministry of Labour offices around Fiji.

Under the ERP any employer who fails to comply with the provisions of the law will be fined a fixed penalty of $100.
