Labour Law in Malawi

Now in its second edition, Labour Law in Malawi by Rachel Sophie Sikwese draws heavily on labour law cases from the courts of Malawi, and provides a history of the development of labour law in Malawi from the colonial era to the present day. The book also provides an examination of the sources of Malawian labour law, domestic and international and evaluates the institutions involved in the implementation, management and enforcement of labour law. Furthermore, certain labour rights are considered through a human rights lens – in particular the issues of gender equality, HIV/AIDS, forced labour, human trafficking and child labour
Rachel Sophie Sikwese is a Judge of the High Court of Malawi, an adjunct lecturer at the University of Malawi and former chairperson of the Malawian Industrial Relations Court.
