Abstract/Citation: Revises and consolidates the law relating to employment. Consists of 12 Parts and 5 Schedules. Part II regulates employment services bureaus and employment agencies. Part III deals with contracts of employment (includes provisions on contracts by minors, conditions preliminary to employment abroad and contracts for casual work). Part IV concerns trainees. Persons deemed to be trainees are persons employed as trainees on an employer's training scheme in respect of the whole period of their training; untrained workers in occupations for which a training course is readily available until they have completed their training; or participants in apprenticeship schemes. Establishes a National Vocational Training Board which shall in collaboration with public and private organisations promote, develop and organise training and apprenticeship schemes and coordinate their activities. Part V governs the protection of wages and regulation of wages and conditions of employment. Part VI protects employment (restrictions on termination of contract and on lay-offs of workers). Part VII and VIII concern discipline and the termination of contracts. Establishes an Employment Advisory Board, which is to advise the Minister whenever a matter is referred to it by the Minister under this Act. Repeals the Employment Act, 1990.
