INFORMAL ECONOMY FORMALISATION IN ZIMBABWE UNDER NATIONAL POLICY FRAMEWORK THEME 4 – FORMALISATION

The Objective of this Theme is the provision of access to economic freedom and social protection to informal economy businesses, in order to provide sustainable jobs and income for informal economy workers.

Section 65 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment (No 20) Act, 2013 provides for the labour rights of all workers including the right to form and join trade unions and employee organisations of their choice and to participate in the lawful activities of these unions and organisations.   The rights of workers in the informal sector must be recognised and protected.

According to International Labour Organisation (ILO) Recommendation 204 (2015), formalisation of the informal sector is not simply registration of informal businesses as legal entities that yield tax revenues, but rather a rights-based transition that provides a convenient way in which micro and small businesses can be registered as legal entities.
