ORANJESTAD - Department of Labor and Research reminds all companies to submit their personnel register form during the period March 1, 2018 through May 4, 2018.

In accordance with article 30, paragraph 2, of the Labor Ordinance 2013, employers must provide the personnel register (PR) to the Department of Labor and Research (DAO).

The personnel register consists of 3 parts:

  • Model 1A: current staff as of December 2017
  • Model 1B: staffing needs of 2018
  • Model 1C: staffing needs associated with specific projects

Below you will find all necessary forms / documents:

This year, the Personnel Register 2017 - 2018 can only be sent digitally. You are therefore kindly requested to send us the data in an Excel spreadsheet (according to our model) via e-mail:

If you have multiple branches, you are kindly requested to fill out one form with all employee data and by placing an asterisk (*) in the column (behind column no. on the form) to indicate which employee is being rotated at your branches.

It is mandatory to fill out all 3 models. In you do not need personnel, or do not need personnel for each specific project, you have to put 'nil' on model 1B and model 1C.

DAO will then send you a receipt for your Personnel Register form 2017 - 2018 by means of an e-mail.  A receipt does not mean that your Personnel Register 2017 - 2018 has been approved. DAO uses a period of 6 months from the filing date to approve or reject the Personnel Register 2017 - 2018.

Department of Labor and Research will help companies with less than 10 employees digitize their data on the following days. To be able to offer this service, the company must have all the data according to model 1 A, 1 B and 1 C.

Date Day Place Time
April 21, 2018 Saturday Office  DAO 9.00 am - 2.00 pm
April 28, 2018 Saturday Office  DAO 9.00 am - 2.00 pm
May 02, 2018 Wednesday Office  DAO 4.30 pm - 7.00 pm
May 03, 2018 Thursday Office  DAO 4.30 pm - 7.00 pm

The Minister of Labor has approved the new policy regarding supervision, control and sanction by the Labor Inspection. Department of Labor and Research will act in accordance with this policy if there is a violation of the labor legislation. If the employer does not submit the personnel register within the filing period, he acts in violation of art. 30 of the Labor Ordinance.

The Department of Labor and Research can impose an administrative fine of AWG. 5000, -, by means of an order subject to an incremental penalty, in case of non-compliance of the employer with art.30 of the labor ordinance. The employer will have the opportunity to still fulfill this obligation. If the employer fails to comply within this period, the Department of Labor and Research will enforce the penalty payment of Awg. 5000.00.

For more questions you may contact Mrs. Louisetty Croes via e-mail or an employee of the Labor Market Research Office at  583-7720.
