Govt to amend Labour Act

Minister of State for Labour and Transport Management Ramesh Lekhak has disclosed that the Government was working to amend the existing Labour Act as it was not able to protect the rights and well-being of the workers in the informal sector.

Speaking at an interaction on 'challenges of women workers in the informal sector' organised by the Women's Rehabilitation Centre (WOREC) here today, Minister of State Lekhak also suggested that a separate cell should be constituted under the security body in order to protect the rights of the workers in the informal sector.

Joint Secretary at the Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare Sushil Ghimire, chairperson of WOREC Dr Renu Rajbhandari and other speakers expressed their views on the occasion.
