Update: March, 16/2015 - 09:34

BA RIA-VUNG TAU (VNS) – A workshop on workplace gender discrimination was held in Vung Tau City, southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province on Saturday, as speakers sought to provide insights into global standards on wage and income to promote gender equality and sustainable employment.

The workshop brought together representatives from the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA), its southern provincial bodies, the Spanish Agency for International Development Co-operation, the International Labour Organisation (ILO), as well as experts and business representatives.

Participants at the workshop studied international labour standards on equal pay and improved practices in applying these standards in Viet Nam.

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 gaps in the workplace, and policy recommendations, along with other topics. — VNS
