The African Labour Law Society (ALLS) is an association for those with an interest in Labour and Employment law on the African continent.
The intention of the Society is to improve knowledge of Labour law within the continent, to promote the sharing of knowledge amongst members, and to encourage participants to learn from other jurisdictions.
The aim of the ALLS is to host quality and affordable congresses and workshops and to create networking platforms for the members to engage with each other. Information about the history of the ALLS, future events and contact details of country representatives are contained under the tabs above.
During the World Labour Law Congress of the International Society for Labour and Security Law in September 2015 concerns were expressed as to the absence of a wider African voice. After an inaugural workshop in July 2016, and with the backing of the International Labour Organisation, law firms ENSafrica and Bowman Gilfillan, and other organisations such as Juta Law and Lex Africa, the African Labour Society was started in early 2017. The Society now has 210 members from 27 different African countries.
The ALLS resolved that the idea of a wider voice of African Labour scholars should be taken forward.
The Constitution of the Society was finalised at the 2nd AGM in September 2018 , and can be found here
The Society is run by a Management committee which is elected at each General Meeting.
