CNMI Labor to hold Community Outreach and Job Fair on May 21-22

(Office of the Governor) — The CNMI Department of Labor announced on Thursday that it will be holding its highly anticipated Community Outreach on Tuesday, May 21, and Job Fair on Wednesday, May 22.

Interest for the Community Outreach is high as the confirmed number of attendees for the outreach is already nearing 100 and is expected to grow as we move closer to the date. Many employers have also expressed interest in becoming a job fair participant, which occurs the day after the community outreach. Both events are expected to be resourceful events for employers, employees, and individuals looking for work.

Topics of discussion during the outreach include enforcement and compliance of CNMI labor laws, Workforce Investment Agency program and partnering opportunities for CNMI employers, the labor complaint process and applicable regulations, and more.

Matthew Deleon Guerrero, Hive Analytics president and chief administrator of this year’s CNMI Prevailing Wage Survey, will be the guest speaker at the outreach on Tuesday.

“The Community Outreach is slated to be the biggest event of the year hosted by DOL,” said Division of Enforcement and Compliance Director Jeff Camacho. “Each division director will discuss a topic relevant to current issues affecting CNMI employers and workers.”

Initially scheduled for the Gov. Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center in Susupe, the event will now be held the Hyatt Regency Saipan Ballroom in Garapan.

“DOL is very grateful to the Hyatt Regency Saipan for agreeing to accommodate us with this year’s community outreach on such short notice,” said CNMI Labor Secretary Vicky Benavente. “The ballroom will comfortably seat over 100 attendees and is already equipped with the technical equipment we need for our day-long presentations.”

Information about the outreach and job fair can be found at http://www.marianaslabor.net/ or by calling the DOL at 664-3190/3196.

These events are free and open to the public, but seats are limited, and the CNMI Department of Labor is asking for attendees to contact DOL at 664-3196 or 323-9996 to make reservations.
