HRW report "No year without deaths" on workers’ rights and safety at work in Georgia

Human Rights Watch released comprehensive report on workers’ rights and safety at work in Georgia.

While the report is based on the study of the impact in one coal and one manganese mine of weak labor standards and weak oversight on working conditions, it also highlights endemic gaps with respect to working hours, weekly rest, night work, payment of overtime hours and work on public holidays in the country in general. It also recommends the establishment of a fully-fledged, independent and appropriately staffed, trained, and resourced Labor Inspectorate with a broad mandate.
