Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) Director Paulo Martins Chan said Tuesday his bureau had urged the city’s casino operators to ensure a “more humane” treatment of their employees.
Chan made the remarks on the sidelines of the swearing-in ceremonies of the new heads of the Macau Monetary Authority (AMCM) and Financial Intelligence Office (GIF) at the Secretariat for Economy and Finance at the Bank of China Building.
Chan said the bureau made the appeal in the wake of complaints by casino employees about their work requirements during last month’s Super Typhoon Hato catastrophe.
Chan said that while his bureau had not detected any work-related legal violations by the casino operators during the disaster, it was aware of claims of workers’ “less humane” treatment during Typhoon Hato and its aftermath.
Chan said the city’s six gaming operators had reacted “positively” to his bureau’s appeal.
