Ministry of Labour and Employment

Ministry of Labour and Employment is responsible for ensuring labour related laws and overall social security of working people. The Ministry has been assigned by the NSSS a major task of introducing an Insurance Scheme for the labourers. Thus the Ministry has a very important profile in terms of social security.

The vision of the Ministry is to promote welfare of the working people including women. To achieve the vision, the Ministry has the mission of enhancing productivity through creation of safe work environments, maintaining peaceful labour relations and development of a skilled labour force. Current situation of the Ministry of Labour and Employment has some fragmented initiatives to provide insurance support to the private sector employees. But it is yet to take up any comprehensive plan for employee insurance.
