Labour Standards

Labour standards, in the realm of HR, refer to the legally mandated regulations and guidelines that govern employment relationships, setting the minimum requirements for employee rights, working conditions, and compensation. HR professionals play a critical role in ensuring that the organization complies with these standards, which typically cover areas such as minimum wage, maximum working hours, overtime, holidays, and workplace safety. Adhering to labour standards is not only a legal obligation but also an ethical imperative that protects employee rights, promotes fairness, and safeguards the well-being of the workforce. HR’s responsibility in this regard includes keeping abreast of changes in labour laws, updating organizational policies to align with these standards, and fostering a workplace that respects and upholds the rights of employees.
