Media Coverage about Fundamental Rights and Professional Health Safety for the Workers

Press and the public Tuesday, 11:33 27-04-2021

In recent years, the media has made an important contribution to the communication of fundamental labour rights and professional health safety, which helps to improve social knowledge, understanding, sympathy, assistance and support. However, the protection of fundamental labour rights and health safety in Vietnam still witness shortcomings and limitations: the workers do not understand their rights fully; they are a vulnerable group and do not have the gut to voice their concern to the employers to protect their benefits. If they have any questions or recommendations, it often takes complicated steps and a long time to receive the answer. The resource to realize fundamental labour rights and health safety is constrained and is mostly provided from state budget with the limited scope and degree of support.
