Labour Administration in Nepal

Funding Agency : International Labour Organization

This study assessed the functioning of labour administration in Nepal by analysing the current gaps (technical, human, financial, knowledge) as well as challenges and opportunities in labour administration practices at the federal, provincial and municipal government levels, the labour offices, labour departments, and labour courts, among others. Based on the evidence generated through this assessment, a practical strategic plan of action with clearly defined roles and responsibilities of relevant agencies and actors for a stronger labour administration system will be prepared. It is expected that the perceived Strategic Plan of Action for Labour Administration will be useful for all relevant governments and their agencies, trade unions and civil society organisations, the business community, and development partners.
