Consultancy service to develop concise information sheets on the Labour Code under New Industrial Relations Framework (NIRF) Project

Print Email

This assignment relates to one of the key objectives of the USDOL-funded NIRF component, which is: "National labour laws and legal instruments are revised to be compatible with the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (FPRW) in full consideration of the socio-economic conditions of Vietnam".

In May 2019, draft of the Labour Code was published for public consultation and appraisal by relevant Ministries and stakeholders. Following this, in accordance with the law making processes, the Social Affairs Committee (SAC) has taken responsibility for improving the draft Labour Code and has further consulted on it, including a series of meetings with ILO. The SAC will continue to carry that responsibility until the draft goes before the National Assembly in October/November 2019. It is expected that National Assembly will pass the Labour Code at this sitting.

ILO now seeks a national or international consultant to draft a series of short, easy to read information sheets describing 'What's in the Draft Labour Code' and to subsequently review and update these sheets as needed, once the Labour Code is passed by the National Assembly.

Proposals should be submitted by email no later than 17:30 GMT+7 on Thursday 21 September 2019.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December


Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
