Abstract

The substantive Labour Act, which is the principal statute on employment relations and working conditions in Nigeria, has come under serious criticisms for its anachronism, inadequacies, and weakness in the articulation and enforcement of its provisions. This has necessitated the review done to the Act to upgrade its provisions so the Act could be empowered to meet with modem-day challenges and issues in the industrial relations arena in Nigeria and to address the inconsistencies therein. This chapter has attempted an in-depth examination of the Labour Standards Bill, which is still with the National Assembly, with a view to analysing the provisions of the bill in the light of the expectations of stakeholders and the exigencies and dynamics of modem-day industrial relations. The study has advanced recommendations to further strengthen the proposed bill, with the hope that when it is passed into law, it would usher in greater industrial harmony and economic development in Nigeria.
