Complaint

IAM: Compliance Advisor/Ombudsman (CAO)

ID: uganda-bujagali-energy-08bujagali

Date Filed: June 6, 2017

Status: Monitoring

Description

The complaint was submitted to CAO in June 2017 by a former employee of the former construction contractor, Salini Costruttori. The complainant claims that in 2009, during the time he was employed at the project site he suffered an injury that caused him severe chronic backache, for which he has not received any compensation. CAO’s compliance appraisal found the Bujagali Energy-08 complaint to be similar in substance to a March 2011 complaint (Bujagali Energy-04) from workers who were injured while working on the construction of the project for the same Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) contractor. The earlier case led to a CAO compliance investigation (also concerning the Bujagali Energy-06 case) that was publicly released in December 2017. Considering that CAO already looked into IFC’s analysis of the worker’s compensation structure and safety supervision during its investigation related to the Bujagali Energy-04 and Bujagali Energy-06 complaints, CAO determined that no investigation on this matter is merited at this time and decided to merge this case with the Bujagali Energy-04 and Bujagali Energy-06 cases for the purpose of monitoring.
