Abstract/Citation: Public Service Act No 30 of 2008 is a direct result of the ratification of three International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions by the Botswana Government in 1997. Subsequently, national labour laws were amended in 2004 to align them with the ILO Conventions following which Government appointed a Reference Committee comprising some public service unions, representatives from Government appointing authorities, Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs and Attorney Generals' Chambers to merge all employment laws governing public employees.
