Bangladesh. Technical note. Comparison between employment injury provisions in the Labour Act and standard provisions of an employment injury insurance scheme


This document analyses the current Labour Act of Bangladesh from the viewpoint of the design of a standard employment injury insurance scheme in line with the ILO social security standards dealing with employment injury benefits, namely the Social Security (Minimum Standards) Convention, 1952 (No. 102) and the Employment Injury Benefits Convention, 1964 (No. 121) and its accompanying Recommendation (No. 121). It is intended that this document may serve as a reference for furthering consultations and discussions in Bangladesh for an introduction of a mechanism to provide timely and adequate compensation to victims of employment injuries and occupational diseases.
