Spaying less than Rs15,000 to labourer declared criminal offence

–New labour policy addresses ‘social evils’ like child labour, bonded labour, gender discrimination, lack of health facilities at workplaces

LAHORE:The Punjab government on Friday launched its new labour policy in a bid to enhance the role of social partners in improving the condition of workers.

Formally launched by Labour and Human Resource Minister Ansar Majeed Khan, the “Punjab Labour Policy 2018” proposes a steering committee overseeing implementation of the policy through a unit, serving as secretariat of the Labour Policy.

According to the new policy, it is now a crime to pay less than Rs 15,000 per month, the minimum wage, to any labourer. The government also makes an attempt to extend the legal and welfare covers to domestic and home-based workers. It will also ensure that their legal rights and benefits are protected through vigorous inspection.
