Attorney General and Minister for Civil Service Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum

Attorney General and Minister for Civil Service Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has announced a work from home civil servants’ guideline which will be rolled out from tomorrow after a meeting with the Permanent Secretaries.

This is for workers in different ministries who can work from home.

Sayed-Khaiyum says the Permanent Secretaries will make the necessary decisions on the staff to work from home.

He says there are many ministries where people do not have to sit in the office. Sayed-Khaiyum says these people can work from home.

The Attorney General says the Permanent Secretaries will track the work of those employees working remotely.

Sayed-Khaiyum also stresses that civil servants cannot call members of the public to meet at their homes.

He also says this will in no way diminish the delivery of government services to the people of Fiji.

The Attorney General has also announced that people can still go to the Births, Deaths and Marriages Office, get fishing licenses the Ministry of Fisheries and people can still lodge development plans at the Office of Town and Country Planning.

The work from home directive was made by Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama as a COVID-19 preventative measure.
