Workers Rights and Responsibilities

Rights and responsibilities in the workplace are key principles of decent work. Some rights include the right to maternity protection, minimum wage and a safe and healthy work environment. The Rights and Responsibilities at the Workplace are enshrined in the Labour Laws of Trinidad and Tobago and are inclusive of terms and conditions of work namely:

·         Rate of Pay

·         Hours of Work

·         Overtime Worked

·         Payment for Public Holidays

·         Sick Leave

·         Vacation Leave

·         Meal Break

Trinidad and Tobago has ratified eight (8) Core Conventions of the International Labour Organization which outline these fundamental rights and provides guidelines for labour standards as practised in our country. The Ministry of Labour and Small Enterprise Development is the Ministry with responsibility for the recognition, adherence and compliance to Labour legislation and Labour standards. The Ministry has established the appropriate institutional and legislative framework for the implementation of basic rights for all workers through the Labour Inspectorate Unit and the Occupational Safety and Health Authority (OSHA). The Labour Inspectorate Unit of the Ministry of Labour and Small Enterprise Development, ensures that both employers and employees are aware of the rights of workers and that these rights are respected.
