The Better Work Vietnam initiative has launched a new Labor Law app for smartphones, designed to educate garment factories and outside users on the compliance challenges faced in the industry.

The app, available in both English and Vietnamese, has been launched in partnership with both the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC).

It offers the latest content from the fourth edition of Better Work's Labour Law Guide and allows users to search key information, skip between chapters of the Labour Code, bookmark and share articles of interest.

The app also contains an interactive quiz to test users' knowledge of the law, and a "Frequently Asked Questions" section featuring some of the most common legal questions asked by factories.

Better Work Vietnam says it hopes the app serves as a "valuable reference for factory managers, HR officers and compliance staff, as well as buyers and vendors with sourcing interests in Vietnam."
