The renowned and touristic nightclub located on the main street of the Downtown Zone, Hong Kong, was fined more than 16 million pesos after an inspection that was carried out due to the fact that they were hiring minors to work in the nudist club.
The Secretary of Labor and Social Welfare, Luis Algorri, announced during a press conference that the establishment was fined 16 million 131 thousand 600 pesos, after ignoring an initial inspection.
The head of the agency explained that last April 29, 2021, personnel from the Secretariat of Labor went to carry out an inspection derived from the complaint that there was an advertisement outside the establishment offering employment to minors.
He also shared that inspections of labor standards were carried out and also interviewed approximately eight workers who did not have the labor benefits required by law.
In view of this situation, last October 18 Hong Kong was fined 16 million 131 thousand 600 pesos for violating the rights of its workers by not having them registered with the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) and for not accrediting the payment of the different labor benefits to which all employees must be subject."
Due to the omission of the inspection, the fine of 16 million pesos was applied to this establishment, and to tell you that it is a company that does not comply with the Federal Labor Law and its workers, we understand, are not registered with the IMSS, that is why the fine is so large for violating the rights of its workers," stated Luis Algorri.
