In conformity with  the international conventions and  other  legal commitments, Ethiopia  has  issued its  labor  law  to  ensure  the  worker-employer relations  be governed by the basic principles of rights and obligations with a view to enabling workers and employers maintain industrial peace and  work in spirit of harmony and cooperation.
The labor  law  is  believed to  be  consistent  with  the  investment policy   of  the country. Foreign investors obtain work permits  for their expatriate employees directly  from   the   Ethiopian   Investment   Agency   (EIA) . The  EIA   processes applications of work permits in an hour.
The labor law has fixed nominal hours of work as eight hours a day and thirty-nine hours a week. Work done  in excess of  these hours is deemed to be  overtime. Ethiopia  has abundant supply of skilled workers in various fields at internationally competitive ra tes.
Wages and  salaries vary depending on the size of  enterprise, type  of profession and  level  of  skill  required.  They are  determined by  agreement between the employer and  the employee. Generally, the cost  of labor  in Ethiopia  is low  by African standard.
Labor  disputes  in  Ethiopia  are  resolved   through   the  application of  the  law, collective agreements, work rules, and employment contracts.
