Vinh Phuc (VNA) - A labour inspection campaign targeting the electronic sector was launched in the northern province of Vinh Phuc on April 18.

The campaign is co-hosted by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA), the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry under the auspices of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). 

It aims to promote compliance with labour regulations for the sustainable development of electronic enterprises.

The campaign aims to increase the number of firms and buildings subject to inspection to at least 500 during April-December and looks to raise the awareness of employers and workers of labour law as well as safety standards and labour hygiene in the sector.

The inspections will focus on compliance with labour regulations, social insurance in enterprises, detecting and addressing violations, and collecting feedback for revising legal documents.

The activity also aims to review the outcomes of the previous campaign, thus making better plan for the next.

The Ministry is developing a strategy on promoting compliance of labour regulations in the sector. Accordingly, all enterprises in the sector are expected to observe labour regulations and labour hygiene and safety by 2020, thus contributing to sustainable development of enterprises and the sector.-VNA
