The event attracted representatives from the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA), its southern provincial bodies, the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation, the International Labour Organisation (ILO), experts and businesses.
(VOV) – On March 14, workshop on workplace gender discrimination took place in Vung Tau city, southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau province, aiming to provide an insight into global standards on wage and income to promote gender equality and ensure sustainable employment.
MoLISA Deputy Minister Doan Mau Diep said Vietnam approved the ILO Convention No.100 on Equal Remuneration and Convention No.111 on Discrimination (Employment and Occupation).
It is imperative for developing countries in the process of international integration like Vietnam to thoroughly grasp these documents and related matters, especially when the country is to build a law on minimum wage.
Attendees studied international labour standards on equal pay and good practice in applying these standards in Vietnam.
They also debated the current legal framework on wage and income, orientations for designing a draft law on minimum wage, research findings on gender pay gap in workplace, and policy recommendations.
