Social Security

Social safety nets include both social security schemes such as guarantee of decent minimum wage; old age/ retirement benefits; unemployment insurance benefits; retrenchment compensations; medical care sickness and compensation for employment injury and death; maternity protection and issues specific to women as well as social and welfare programs, as determined in law, policy measures, contracts including collective bargaining agreements and international instruments. In Bangladesh, the root of social security system and laws are based upon rules and regulations introduced by the British Colonial regime. There is no specific national policy at present on safety-net issues and very little discussion took place in society in this regard.
