Course Overview:
The Bangladesh Labour Act, 2006 was made mostly during the British
Colonia regime and Pakistan period and they were as many as 50 in
number. In many cases these laws were outdated, scattered, inconsistent
and often overlapping each other. In 1992 a Labour Law Commission was
formed by the Government of the day which examined 44 labour laws
and recommended to repeal 27 laws and it prepared a draft Labour Code
in 1994. This draft of Labour Code, 1994 underwent series of changes in
its vetting stages and finally the Bangladesh Labour Act, 2006 was passed
by the Parliament on October 11, 2006.Section 353 of the Code has
repealed 25 previous labour related laws. There are still 25 valid laws
dealing with labour and industrial issues have not been repealed or
consolidated and as such the Bangladesh Labour Act, 2006 although a
consolidated Act has not consolidated all the laws in the field.
Furthermore, although the name of the law is Bangladesh Labour Code, in
fact, it is not a Code rather a consolidating legislation only.

the employers for the protection of their rights and even for subsistence
wages. The workers are exposed to certain risks in factories, mines and
other establishments. Labour and industrial law provides for industrial
harmony in the country. Industrial harmony is indispensable when a
country plans to make economic progress. It is true that no nation can
hope to survive in the modern technological age unless it is wedded to
industrial development and technological advantage. So after completing

the constitution of Labour Tribunal and Labour Appellate Tribunal,
powers, classification of workers, rights of workers, inquiries or trials,
