Honduras: Hourly Employment Act extended for Two Years

The law on flexible labor passed in 2010 was valid for three years and now its extension has provoked opposition from worker unions seeking its repeal.

Representatives from several labor unions asked the president Porfirio Lobo to repeal the Employment Act which was extended on 18 January before he leaves the Government. Trade unions believe that the rule violates the Labor Code and curtails the rights of workers.

"This law does not make it possible to dignify work as the main source of wealth, as mandated by Article 328 of the Constitution," he explained.

In 2010 "... Congress created the National Hourly Employment Program, as an emergency measure to stimulate the economy, keep decent jobs, support employment and avoid growth of the underemployment and unemployment rates in the nation."
