Audit finds health workers employed in office jobs

0 2

An audit has revealed that out of 20 people recruited as workers to carry out the daily waste management activities of the Matale Municipal Council, under the approval of the Central Provincial Local Government Commissioner, five have been employed in office work outside of the purpose for which they were recruited.

At a time when the Management Service Circular 2018 issued by the Ministry of Finance and Media limited new recruitment, this group has been recruited on a temporary basis to work as health workers for the creation of a clean green city. However, they are deployed in office services outside of that purpose. It has been observed in the audit that the payment of allowances under the health expenditure, while they were rendering services under other departments, was a result of poor management decisions.

A special discussion regarding the recruitment of these temporary labourers was held on September 8, 2020, at the Central Provincial Governor’s Office with the participation of a group of officials including the Acting Mayor of Matale Municipal Council.

The Central Provincial Local Government Commissioner informed the Acting Mayor in a letter on September 11, 2020, that the recruited employees should be employed only in the prescribed work and should not be used for office duties.
