Workshop on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and Informal Economy in India
V.V Giri National Labour Institute is organizing a one day workshop on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (FPRW) and informal economy in India on 16th October 2012. The Workshop would be attended by the representatives working on FPRW and informal economy from various Ministries, ILO, NGO's, Academicians and the Researchers working in the area of rights at work. Papers presented in the Seminar will be published in an edited volume through a reputed publication house.
FPRW is the threshold to decent work as it gives fair income, security in the workplace, equal opportunities and treatment, freedom to organize and participation in decision making. India is preparing to take suitable measures to ratify the other four conventions before the International Labour Conference to be held in the year 2015. Hence, it is a high time to examine the status of FPRW in the informal economy and the measures to be taken for ratifying the other four ILO conventions.
