PUTRAJAYA: The government has pledged to improve labour laws and workforce processes, says the Prime Minister.

This is aimed at creating the best mechanism to resolve issues between employers and employees in a harmonious way, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

In his Labour Day speech, he said the government was reviewing, among others, regulations that touched on minimum working standards, unions, social security and health benefits to protect the welfare of employees “without denying the contributions of employers to the development of the country”.

The government is also looking to strengthen and enforce the Self Employment Social Security Scheme and the Employment Injury Scheme for taxi drivers or self-employed workers, including those providing e-hailing services, under the Self Employment Social Security Act 2017, he said at the Labour Day celebration at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre on Wednesday (May 1).
