The Houkouki fi al 3amal application was developed by ILO with support from UNICEF under the project “Towards improved formal and non-formal Technical Vocational & Education Training in Lebanon” and the Italian Agency for Cooperation Development (AICS) under the project “Improved access to employment opportunities for Lebanese and refugee graduates from skills training”. The objective under these projects was to raise awareness of training graduates and new entrants to the labour market on their rights and obligations at the workplace as well as to enhance the knowledge and capacity of NGOs providing vocational training and post-training support towards better employment outcomes and access to decent work for graduates.
This initiative benefited from close partnership with the Ministry of Labour of the Government of Lebanon (MoL), the Association of Lebanese Industrialists (ALI), the Confederation General for Lebanese Workers (CGTL), the National Federation of Employees’ and Workers’ Union (FENASOL) and other key stakeholders in the country.
The App includes a user-friendly guide, a self-paced online training and frequently asked questions related to the Lebanese labour law and other employment issues. It aims to build capacity, knowledge and awareness regarding rights and obligations at the workplace. The training programme is intended to empower trainees by providing them with basic knowledge on the rights and fundamental mutual obligations upon signing an employment contract.
The app is addressed to public at large including employers, graduates of education and vocational training, employees or workers, and anyone interested to deepen knowledge about the Labour laws in Lebanon.
