The Myanmar Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security is working on a new law that will protect the safety and health of workers.
The government also plans to amend other labour laws in the country in accordance with the constitution, treaties and international standards. One of such laws is the 1951 Mills and Factories Act.
The ministry’s objectives are to maintain industrial peace; provide free employment services and skills training; conduct research on labour matters; ensure workers enjoy rights under labour laws; promote occupational safety, health, and social security; and participate in international labour affairs.
Under the new civilian government, the Parliament enacted three new labour-related laws: Labour Organisation Law (2011), Social Security Law (2012), and Settlement of Labour Dispute Law (2012).
