The Centre for Labour Research promotes awareness on fundamental labour rights, as guaranteed under the Constitution of Pakistan 1973 and various international human rights treaties that the State has signed or ratified over the years. The Centre’s work guides all the stakeholders, i.e., workers especially youth, employers, government and international organizations, in navigating the local labour market in legal and statistical contexts. The Centre engages in research on contemporary labour issues and generates innovative ideas to deal with the labour rights malaise.
Our Vision is for a society where all types of labour is equitably rewarded and where people are aware of their employment rights.
Our Mission is to produce objective research that can help reform the employment legislation regime in the country. While pursuing these reforms, we strive to provide information to the masses and raise their awareness about workplace rights.
