The new General Labour Law (LGT), approved by Law No. 7/15, of 15 June, introduced some changes to Angola’s employment regime that resulted from the previous Law (Law No. 2/00, of 11 February), to respond to the necessities that resulted from the country’s economic evolution since the beginning of the century. Its publication had an evident material impact on the labour market, and the Government approved some complementary measures aimed at regulating in greater detail some situations that had not been properly considered in the LGT, and at creating or developing the conditions for certain, more innovative solutions set in the new Law to become fully operative.
In this study, we aim to discuss some of the said innovations (regardless of whether they were already contemplated in the text of the LGT or were introduced by later legislation) which, by their nature or scope, seem to us to be especially relevant.
