Mozambique Employment and Labour Law 2016

What are the main sources of employment law? The Constitution of Mozambique establishes in its Title III, Chapter V (Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and Duties) a number of fundamental rights, such as freedom of association (Trade Unions), the right to work and the right to strike. Additionally, the Mozambican Employment Law (Law No. 23/2007, of 1 August 2007) is applicable to all employment relationships in Mozambique.  The employment relationships of foreign non-resident employees are also regulated by Decree No. 55/2008, of 30 December 2008.
