The main activity of the Labour Department is to promote opportunities for Men and Women to obtain decent and productive work. It aims to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthening dialogue in handling work related issues. Social protection comprises those measures which aim at preventing, reducing and eliminating economic and social vulnerability to poverty and deprivation. Access to justice is one of the most important and primary needs and rights of every worker. The Department ensures this right by enforcing the various Industrial and Labour laws that are applicable to the State.
