National Employment Policy

The Ministry of Labour is tasked with protecting the workforce. In this regard, the Ministry is currently working on a national employment policy, which will contain procedures that should be adhered to in the workplace.  This morning, the Labour Commissioner, Anne Marie Thompson, was on the Business Perspective speaking about the employment policy.

 Anne Marie Thompson – Labour Commissioner: Very soon we will be doing consultations to get feedback. In the meantime we have been working with the World Bank because for any policy, any project you need to do some preliminary work so the World Bank has been working with us on two fronts. Recently they have done a job diagnostic exercise and they have also looked at our Labour Market Programs so these results will be made public very soon and we will start the discussion.”

The Ministry of Labour is collaborating with the World Bank on this initiative.
