Guide to Vietnamese Labour Law for the Garment Industry – 7th edition

30 May 2018

Working in collaboration with the Ministry of Labor Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), Better Work Vietnam published a ‘Guide to Vietnamese Labour Law for the Garment Industry’ in June 2011, to help employers, employees, international buyers, and other stakeholders better understand the obligations and rights stipulated by Vietnamese Labour Law. This guide integrated every major source of Vietnamese Law into one easy-to-use book and has been serving as a practical and useful tool for stakeholders since.

This seventh edition of the guide includes updates following recent changes in Vietnamese laws pertaining to trade union activity, the collective bargaining process, discrimination and occupational safety and health (OSH), as reflected in newly-adopted documents and circulars. Better Work Vietnam has been advising and assessing enterprises on compliance to these new regulations.

This seventh edition of ‘Guide to Vietnamese Labour Law for the Garment Industry’ published in 2019 is available as an easy to search, download and print online resource which will be regularly updated as additional guidance is provided by MOLISA.
