Practical challenges for maternity protection in the Cambodian garment industry

This report presents the results of research by the ILO on the practical challenges involved in ensuring maternity protection in the Cambodian garment industry. It is based on focus group interviews with workers employed in six garment factories and two footwear factories, and on one-on-one interviews with union representatives, factory managers and labour officials inspectors as well as a review of 49 relevant awards of Cambodia's Arbitration Council between 2003 and 2011.
