Bangladesh working on employment injury scheme

May '17
Bangladesh government is working on a long-term sustainable employment injury scheme in view of recent incidents in the garment sector. The German government and ILO are providing financial and technical assistance for the purpose. Although the labour law in Bangladesh has provision for compensation to workers in accidents, a sustainable scheme is needed.

Announcing this, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the representatives of the government, owners and workers had already visited the Employment Injury Scheme in Germany, according to a Bangladesh news agency report.

"In the light of this experience, we hope that we would be able to build such a scheme befitting to the country through which giving proper compensation to the workers would be easier," she was quoted as saying in the report.

The prime minister sought cooperation of the owners and the workers groups for the long-term sustainable employment injury scheme, the report said.

"I would like to tell the owners to be more sympathetic and look after the wellbeing of those who increase production by keeping operative the mills and factories by giving labour," Hasina said.

"Simultaneously I want that the workers would be more sincere in keeping the mills and factories operational through which the arrangement for their income is made," she said.

The prime minister was addressing a function at her office while distributing financial assistance among the successors of the workers, killed in accidents, as well as their meritorious children.

She said the government had announced minimum wages for the workers of 38 industrial sectors including garment. "We have also ensured equal wages for the huge number of female workers working in different industries including garment," she said. (SV)
