For an employment relationship to go as smoothly as possible, both the employer and the employee must respect obligations provided by labor law.However   according to the various surveys made by  a research organization IPAR , work-related conflicts  like overtime hours, issues related to termination of employment contracts, non-payment of social security benefits to the RSSB, dismissal and others were highlighted by the study.

Urubuga rw’Itangazamakuru  “Club de la Presse” broadcasted  on  Sunday  9th August 2020, in synergy by 10 radio stations  and one Television (TV Isango star), in all the provinces  of the country  focused on  “Promoting  justice in governance complying with labor law"

Invitees :

1.  NDABARUSHIMANA Colette/Transparency International Rwanda

2.  MUSONI Jordi Michel/Deputy GS/CESTRAR

3.  TWAHIRWA Alexander/Legal Analyst

The invitees pointed out that non-compliance with labor laws hampers governance because it often leads law enforcement officials to make decisions that are often the opposite.

They have raised concerns about the fact that employers are harassing employees and that even those who are supposed to protect   employers are doing nothing because of fearing some of high profiled employers where some of them are protected by the high ranked officials and being big investors makes them unfair to employees.

The audience participated in the talk show via SMS and phone calls pointing out that labor delegates should help vulnerable employees to get justice and labor inspectors who seem to be doing nothing because they often work under employers’ supervision.

The conclusion of the talk show was that dialogue and consensus between employees and employers is the only best way to resolve the issue and called on the authorities to abide by the Labor Law which should be enforced impartially.
