Labour Laws Reviewed

A new text produced by the Community Legal Education Centre (CLEC) reassessing the

efficiency of Cambodia's ten year old Employment and Labour Law has been released

in Khmer. The text entitled The Cambodian Employment and Labour Law was presented

to the Senate in October, recommending several amendments to Cambodia's employment

law. In a report issued with the publication, Ann Vireak of CLEC identified several

inconsistencies in the interpretation of the law and proposed that the use of a more

concise language would result in a clearer interpretation of workplace legislation.

The book also recommends that the laws represent all employees engaged in employment

contracts. At present, the laws do not apply to public servants, police, army, judges,

air and maritime transportation personnel and domestic or household servants. In

addition to making the language of the law clearer and aiding legal training the

CLEC anticipate the Khmer publication will challenge the ambiguity of existing laws

and provide more certainty to those regulated by, and applying the law in workplaces.
