The Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations & Employment is the authority which regulates labour laws in Mauritius. The Ministry operates several departments, each one specializing in a particular aspect of employment: operational health & safety, labour law, employment of foreign nationals, licensing of recruitment agencies, etc.
The Employment laws in Mauritius include protection against discrimination and unlawful termination of employment among a number of fundamental rights. These laws are necessary to delineate and safeguard the rights of the Employer and Employee.
