INTRODUCTION

Your Employer/ Boss has many obligations towards you. Sadly, these obligations usually go unfulfilled as many employees do not know about these rights. While some do not care, others are being treated as though these rights are just mere privileges.

The reason for this might not be far fetched as it might be due to the tense economic atmosphere, the high unemployment rate and the skyrocketing rate of job loss in Nigeria. People are too busy focusing on finding and keeping a job than enforcing their labour rights as entrenched in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Labour Act, the various laws, and the International Conventions that govern employer/employee relations.

However, these rights are important to every individual as they determine to an extent the quality of life he lives. Some individuals are not even employees but mere 'Contract Staff', or just under a 'simple contract' and do not know this. The problem with this, is that they are not entitled to all the benefits of someone under a contract of employment.

Also, there might be benefits, bonuses, allowances that you might be entitled to which you might simply be denied of simply because you do not know these rights or how to enforce them. For example, an employer who sustains an injury in the course of employment is entitled to certain compensation for the injury sustained.

Also, a civil servant cannot be dismissed without going through the process of fair hearing.

These rights and many more would be discussed in these series but we have provided a list of laws and Articles you can download and read

1. LABOUR ACT.

2. Minimum Obligations of an Employer 

3. Employment & Labour Law 2011
