My dad told me that there is unemployment in haiti. I do not believe that so would you tell me about

I can understand why you don't believe it.  It's because unemployment in Haiti is disguised under the name epidemi :-\  Just think, if half, or even ten percent of the people who had emigrated from the country didn't do so... if they had decided to stay in Haiti, work, raise a family.... how different their life would be.

    1. Yes, it's a service available to a very small group of working people in Haiti (as you may imagine).
      There are other companies which offer sick leave and medical insurance. I know Teleco was one of them.

      To me, the ideal employer in Haiti would offer unemployment benefits and medical insurance which can be used in hospital abroad. That would be helpful to sick people seeking medical treatment overseas.

  3. That's a question for your employer in Haiti.
    Does your employer offer these benefits?
    Are you eligible?
    Eske ou te gen yon dizon avèk konpayi w'ap travay la pou yo peye w yon pousantaj lajan pou yon nonm tan, sizanka ou ta tonbe malad?
    Ki dizon ki te genyen?
    Pa gen konpani nan peyi Ayiti ki pral peye w chomaj san pa't gen yon dizon sou sa.

    Tonton mwen t'ap travay pou lame Ayiti. Lè li vin pran retrèt li, yo te peye li pansyon li chak mwa san tèt chaje.... paske te gen yo dizon sou sa.

    Papa mwen te nan marin Ayisyen. Lè li kite lame, li pa't resevwa okenn pansyon paske li te kite anvanlè.

    Konsa anplwaye a ta dwe konnen enfòmasyon sa yo depi lè li te koumanse travay la. Se pa lè li kite travay la pou l'ap mande si li kapab resevwa benefis.

    Dakò zanmi :)
