Over 60 factories charged over labour rights violations in Yangon


Yangon region authorities took action against more than 60 factories for violation of labour rights, according to the Factories and the General Labour Laws Inspection Department, state media reported on 2 November.

A total of 64 factories have been charged under existing laws after authorities found that the employers of those factories broke labour-related provisions. The investigators say that many workers, especially from garment factories, were forced to work over the set time frame.

According to the amendment of the 1951 Factory Act, overtime is limited to a maximum of 2 hours per day. Under factory rules, working hours shall not exceed 8 hours per day or 44 hours a week and it shall not exceed 48 hours per week for the work which has to be done continuously. Also, the work week shall not exceed 6 days per week. MIZZIMA
