15.1 Local labour law

Employment law and accepted practice varies significantly between countries. All terms and conditions must adhere to local labour law requirements, and these must be taken into account in any review or development of HR policies, systems or procedures. CARE must subscribe to the provisions established in the labour legislation in any country.

In some cases, it may be necessary to seek advice from a legal advisor. Regular follow-up of the changes in the national legislation is needed, especially in countries undergoing major political changes or restructuring, as amendments to the law may occur at any time.
