Fact Sheet: CINTRI Rubbish Collectors’ Protest

The recent rubbish collectors’ protests and subsequent negotiations with CINTRI demonstrated restraint on behalf of the Royal Government of Cambodia (the ‘’RGC’’), and highlighted how, with dialogue and compromise between all parties, collective strike action can be resolved peacefully in the Kingdom of Cambodia (‘’Cambodia’’).

Fact Sheet: The Labor Law 1997

Fact Sheet: The Labor Law 1997

The Cambodian Center for Human Rights (“CCHR”) has classified the Labor Law as yellow, because, in spite of all the positive provisions introduced by the law, some of its dispositions incite job insecurity. Moreover, the Labor Law fails to provide a more coercive system that obliges factories and authorities to implement the provisions of the Labor Law.
