AUGUST 17 AMENDMENTS

 








Articles in reference to the chronological progression of the legal amendments of 17 August, 2010, concerning the right to work of Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

On August 17, 2010, the Lebanese Parliament ratified legal amendments to Article 9 of the Social Security Law; and Article 59 of the Lebanese Labour Law.
