Navigating Pakistan’s Employment Law: Rights and Responsibilities

Understanding employment law is essential for both employers and employees. It sets the rights, obligations, and protections in the employment relationship. The labour law landscape in Pakistan is extensive, with numerous federal and provincial laws, including the Employment of Children Act, 1991, the Minimum Wages for Unskilled Workers Ordinance, 1969, and the Industrial and Commercial Employment Ordinance, 1968, among others.

These laws cover a variety of issues such as minimum wage, working hours, health and safety regulations, discrimination, and termination of employment. For instance, the laws prohibit child labour, provide for a maximum 48-hour work week, and stipulate certain conditions for lawful termination of employment.

Understanding and adhering to these laws is critical to maintaining a productive and compliant work environment. However, the myriad laws and regulations can be daunting to navigate alone.
