Labour Laws, The Business Environment And The Growth Of Micro And Small Enterprises In South Asia
PDF File Size: 1.83 MB | Download   
This report presents the results of a major three year assessment undertaken by the International Labour Organization (ILO), in partnership with the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), in four countries in South Asia: Bangladesh, India Nepal, and Sri Lanka. It provides empirical evidence on the influence labour1related laws and regulations have on enterprise growth and the promotion of decent and productive employment. This evidence fills a gap in our understanding of how labour laws and regulations affect the decisions of micro- and small enterprise (MSE) owners and managers. It helps us to better understand the ways in which policy and legal and regulatory reform can improve the conditions for MSE employment. This evidence provides a basis for continued social dialogue between governments, employers and workers in South Asia.
