The handbook is part of our Worker Education Series and three new chapters have now been made available. The Minimum Wages Act, Maternity Benefits Act and Contract Labour Act are explained in these chapters.

Cividep works to empower workers and communities and tries to ensure that businesses comply with human rights, labour rights and environmental standards. The organisation has been trying to educate workers on their rights since 2000. These new chapters each explain a different labour law. When the handbook is finished it will be printed in English and Hindi.
