The Department of Labour is now able to service clients digitally, Senator, Hon. Dion Foulkes stated as he described the department’s modernization in his contribution to the 2021/2022 budget debate in the Senate.  “I am happy to report that the Department of Labour is modernizing its accounting systems. In fact on 1 June, 2021, the department launched its first Digi Pay Cashless system,” he said. The new system will process notification of vacancy applications along with union registration fees and union costing matters. It now allows the department to accept company cheques or credit/debit cards online through the Digi Pay platform and cash at third party vendors, Cash and Go, Suncard and OMNI Finance Group. The Senator remarked the system looks promising for the department.
