Labour laws and industrial relations

Informal sector: Labour laws and industrial relations

This report includes two parts: the main report where data and information collected from five case studies on financial intermediaries are assessed and recommendations are made for improving access to financial services by the informal sector; and a second part where the five case studies are presented.

The objectives of the report are threefold: to outline the various labour laws in the country, particularly those defining the different labour relations and labour standard rights of the workers; second to analyze the applicability of these labour laws to informal sector workers; and third, to identify alternative legal approaches to the issue of extending protection to informal sector workers.
