Factory bosses urged to sign employment contracts

Nay Pyi Taw, 31 Aug— The Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security issued an announcement Monday urging factory owners to sign employment contracts with workers within the first 30 days of their employment.
Factory owners are obliged to sign employment contracts with staff from September, the ministry said. Last week the government set a national minimum wage of K3,600 (US$2.80) for a standard eight-hour work day across all sectors and industries.
Small and family-run businesses with a workforce comprising less than 15 workers also need to sign employment contracts in accordance with a wage agreed between them.— GNLM
