The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania recognizes that employment has a central role in promoting national prosperity, poverty eradication, social inclusion as well as in enhancing stability, peace and social harmony. Creating decent jobs and self-employment opportunities is thus fundamental to the realization of the right to work, as well as a means for sustained economic growth, poverty eradication and the attainment of national and international goals and commitments, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The Government is also committed to provide a conducive environment for the promotion of full employment and decent work. Consequently, employment issues have been incorporated in the national poverty reduction strategy named as the National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty. In addition, Tanzania has ratified eight ILO core conventions and has already reviewed the National Employment Policy as part of this effort.

Furthermore, the government has enacted the Employment and Labour Relations Act No. 6 of 2004, which guarantees fundamental labour rights and establishes basic employment standards. The act provides broad protection against discrimination in any employment undertaking or practice and requires employers to take positive steps to guarantee women and men equal pay for work of equal value. Other relevant enactments include  the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Workmen’s Compensation Act and Disabled Persons Employment Act No. 2 of 1982.

The Ministry of Labour and Employment in colaboration with POPSM, PSRS, TAESA provides detailed information on how the Government interventions are aimed at attracting and retaining well qualified personnel, in the public service, as well as motivating employees by addressing equitable remunerations across the service. This section provides information on Employees Welfare, Ethical Conduct, Employees Benefits, Circulars,  Government Employment, OPRAS, Scheme of Service and Training.
