Pakistan has most recently revamped its labour and employment laws. This activity was spurred by a major amendment in the Constitution of Pakistan under which the four provinces of the country and the capital territory were empowered to separately legislate upon employment and labour issues. Subsequent enactments of provincial legislatures have resulted in a rapidly evolving legal landscape that the employers must be aware of at all times. Since each province has a separate employment law, a company with operations in several provinces needs to be cognizant of variations in laws across provinces.
