Dec 21, Colombo: The government of Sri Lanka is looking at introducing new regulations to address the shortcomings in the labor laws that are currently in place in the country.

Labor Minister Gamini Lokuge said that the new regulations are being proposed to address issues faced by the workers in the country.

The proposed new regulations will fill the loopholes in the local labor laws that are most often misused by foreign companies resulting in the exploitation of local employees, Lokuge explained.

He noted that trade unions in the country have pointed out that foreign companies often tend to exploit local employees due to loopholes in the local labor laws.

According to Lokuge, the Ministry is in the process of preparing the necessary regulations and will be presented to the National Council of Trade Unions once it is drafted.
