About the book:
Labour Law in Ghana analyses the current statutory and regulatory framework of labour and
employment relations in Ghana. It critically examines the primary thematic areas of labour
law such as individual labour law; collective labour law; the basic conditions of employment;
employment protection; unfair and fair termination of employment agreements as provided
for under the Labour Act No. 651 of 2003 and common law; the monitoring, adjudication
and enforcement of labour rights in Ghana; forced labour; occupational health and safety;
and compensation for diseases and injuries sustained by workers
in the course of their employment. The legislative and statutory
framework and pronouncements by courts are assessed through the
lens of international standards relating to the workplace. This book
also highlights some contemporary issues that require attention
from political actors or policymakers.
