Abstract
The workers in vulnerability are less likely to have formal work arrangements, and are therefore more likely to lack decent working conditions, adequate social security and „voice? through effective representation by trade unions. The employment is often characterized by inadequate earnings, low productivity and difficult conditions of work which undermines even fundamental rights of the workers. The situation poses a threat for socio economic development of the country. Special policy measures are required to mitigate the sufferings of these workers. The present Paper examines the situation of working children, bonded labourers and women workers in Pakistan. Along with focusing on the existing legal mechanism, the paper also highlights the various interventions of the Government of Punjab for the vulnerable workers. It also proposes a way forward for the policy makers to devise comprehensive interventions for amelioration of the conditions of these workers.
