ABSTRACT

This report is entitled "legal analysis of labor laws in Uganda". The study

was carried out based on three objectives, that is; to identify the various

labor laws in Uganda, to establish the current working conditions of

employees in Uganda, and to find out how the labor laws are being

applied in the Uganda.

The study was in form of a descriptive survey, to describe and analyze

the condition of the areas being studied as it was at the time. The study

population comprised of 300 employees of the Uganda Law Reform

Commission, from which a study sample of 60 respondents was chosen,

using Purposive sampling method. Questionnaires and interviews were

used in collecting both primary and secondary data. The collected data

was analyzed qualitatively.

The findings showed that there was a generally strong agreement on the

existence of appropriate labor laws in Uganda's legal regime. In addition,

the study findings also show that there is general observation of noncompliance

with the labor laws by most employers, especially in the

private sector, and a weak enforcement mechanism by the government.

The researcher concluded that the high rates of unemployment and the

absence of a minimum wage policy are some of the major causes of

abuse of labor laws in Uganda. He also observed that there is a weakness

and lack of willingness on the part of government to enforce labor laws

for fear of scaring away investors. He recommends the establishment of a

minimum wage, empowering Trade union organizations and strict enforcement of all labor laws in their entirety.
