"Labour Law Compliance and the Role of Public Labour Inspection in Viet Nam´s Electronics Sector";

Kurzfassung englisch:
As part of the ILO project "More and Better Jobs through Socially Responsible Labour Practices in Vietnam" (VIE/15/01/JPN) this is a report on the second study carried out to understand labour law compliance issues in the electronics sector towards ensuring decent working conditions. The study considered the work of the labour inspectorate towards improving workplace compliance, both with regard to general working conditions and occupational safety and health issues. Also, the specific interactions between electronics firms and the labour inspectorate were analysed. The main findings show key challenges in the areas of discrimination, working hours, low wages and allowances, occupational health and safety risks, weak trade unions (TUs) and industrial relations, weak monitoring of labour compliance by the Ministry of Labour and industrial zone authorities, and the use of private standards on labour conditions. This report is based on semi-structured interviews with managers and workers in 17 foreign-owned electronics factories and 7 domestic Vietnamese electronics enterprises. In addition brief information notes on Department of Labour Invalids and Social Affairs (DOLISA) inspections of 40 electronic firms from 2012 to 2015 across the country were taken into account.
