In course of clause-wise discussion on ‘Employment Act-2075′ in today’s meeting of the Industry, Commerce, Labour and Consumer Rights Protection Committee under the Federal Parliament, it was shared that workers working in the formal and informal sectors would also be brought under the ambit of social security.
Saying the government would provide 100 days’ employment in one fiscal year to each unemployed person, Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security, Gokarna Bista, said that livelihood allowance would be provided if the government fails to guarantee minimum employment.
