Extending Maternity Protection to Women in the Informal Economy - The case of Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.26 MB | Download   
Social protection for all workers is a human rights issue for the International Labour Organization (ILO). The ILO actively promotes all countries to extend social protection to all groups in society across the full range of contingencies and to improve working conditions and safety at work.
Maternity protection has been a priority for the ILO since the year of its founding, 1919, when it adopted the first Maternity Protection Convention. Recently, the ILO adopted the Maternity Protection Convention, 2000 (No. 183), greatly broadening the scope of protection and specifically encompassing for the first time, women employed in the informal economy, including those in atypical forms of work and the self-employed. Since these are among the most vulnerable workers, extending protection to them is of immense significance.
