New labor code submitted to deputies for validation

(Togo First) - A new labor code, aimed at establishing a more business-friendly economy, was recently submitted to the assembly for validation. 

According to sources close to the case, the new pro-investment document aligns with the government’s reforms to improve the business climate. It was elaborated through a participatory and inclusive process, involving all concerned stakeholders - labor unions, professional and employers organizations (represented by the national employers’ association). 

Besides attracting investments and improving the business climate, Togolese authorities intend with the new legislation to improve the working conditions of employees as well.  This reminds of a statement made by the minister of public service, Gilbert Bawara, during a national council for social dialogue in 2019. “We must also provide more protection and give more consideration to employees,” he said at the time. 

Let’s recall that deputies started their second ordinary session on Monday. The new labor code should be part of the 23 draft bills pending consideration in the committee. 

Once approved, the regulation will be adopted by the interprofessional collective convention and sectoral conventions.
