Labour Law tips


Learning and education is a journey. It is a progressive process. Only by learning one tip at a time do you embrace the chance for social, economic and general empowerment. Learn ‘one thing’ every day from a reliable source of educators, practitioners and mentors in law with a combination of over 20 years experience. This year, SheriaTips has partnered with Haki Mashinani in order to to educate and empower both employers and employees on their rights and duties as far as Labour Law is concerned. Through an application, Sheriatips developed a platform that could relay short messages for free to a select pilot group on issues touching on labour rights, sexual exploitation in places of employment among other topics. The recipient after receiving a short message may opt to read more content of the message and even get legal assistance by sending a message through this web page for further follow up, more enlightenment or referral to like minded NGOs or pro-bono lawyers.
