For people to be able to defend their rights it is crucial that they understand their rights, especially those related to employment. No matter if you are an employer or employee, doing an internship or applying for a job, understanding national laws regarding labour make you aware what to look out for.

Many NGO's develop programs working in this area by organizing awareness campaigns for workers or worker organizations, women's organizations and unions to increase knowledge levels. Additionally there are programs that provide information on (inter)national labour standards & labour rights for entrepreneurs. This will allow entrepreneurs to better understand their responsibilities.
