Pakistan faces the challenge of weak enforcement of labour laws at both Federal and Provincial levels. Keeping in view the post 18th Amendment scenario, there is an urgent need to increase awareness levels among legislators about labour issues, importance of complying with international labour standards and related labour rights. In this regard, this paper has been commissioned by PILDAT and authored by Dr. Sabur Ghayur, Chairman, Centre for Labour Advocacy and Dialogue (CLAD), Islamabad. The paper, PILDAT hopes, will contribute to building the capacity of Pakistani Parliamentarians and policymakers to develop legislation and policy on labour issues. With increased levels of awareness, policymakers and Parliamentarians will be able to improve their mechanisms of enforcing labour laws in Pakistan.
