workers 01.11.11.jpgEmployees have appealed to employer organisations and government to take stern action against unscrupulous employers who are not honouring court rulings which are in favour of workers.


Employees have castigated employers for not abiding by rulings made by courts on labour disputes, calling on government to come up with strong measures against such practices.

Many companies have been taken to the labour courts for various disputes ranging from unfair dismissal to remuneration grievances.

The law of Zimbabwe, like that of most other countries, realises that the power of employers to hire and fire should be restricted.

The law which governs employment of workers in Zimbabwe is mainly contained in the Labour Relations Act (Chap 28:01).


It is this act which creates special courts called the Labour Relations Tribunal, whose main function is to administer justice which is sensitive to the plight of workers.
