Subject to the availability of funds, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), Bureau of International Labor Affairs, will award a cooperative agreement for a technical assistance project to improve the effectiveness of the Peruvian labor inspectorate, with a focus on the Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion (MTPE)Â’s newly-formed National Superintendency of Labor Inspection or Â“Superintendencia Nacional de Fiscalizacion LaboralÂ” (SUNAFIL). Specifically, the project will focus on helping to ensure more effective enforcement of laws, regulations, and other legal instruments governing subcontracting/outsourcing and the use of temporary employment contracts.
