Jamaica News, Kingston: The government is coming under increased pressure to review and modernize labour laws.

The latest call was made on Wednesday by the Jamaica Employers’ Federation (JEF).

According to the federation, authorities at the Ministry of Labour and Social Security have been repeatedly urged to address the outdated laws during quarterly sittings of the Labour Advisory Council, however, no action has been taken to date.

For the federation, the laws that are in urgent need of attention are: the labour relations code, the labour relations and industrial disputes act and the industrial dispute tribunal.

A landmark case between Utech and Spencer which reached the privy council is said to have highlighted the need for labour reforms in Jamaica.
