Right to Information Act, No. 12 of 2016

Sri Lanka’s Right to Information (RTI) Act comes into effect by bringing with it a promise of open government, citizens’ active participation in governance, and accountability to the people of the country.

Note: The information on the progress related to the investigations of the complaints which forwarded to the Department of Labour and the measures taken in respect of those complaints can directly be obtained by the parties to such complaints. The requests for such information do not need to be made under the Right to Information Act. Further, if a court action has already been taken regarding the matters related to an investigation, the request is forwarded to the Court and upon the permission of the Court information is provided to the respective parties.

However, in the event of an outside party to a complaint requests the information on the complaint or the information on the investigation made in relation to the complaint, it will be ascertained whether a court action has already been taken on the complaint or whether there is a possibility to take a court action in future. Considering the said facts, only the disclosable information will be provided to the requesting party.

Since all the ordinances, Acts, regulations, formats and set of instructions pertinent to all the labour laws have already been published on the web site, requests need not to be made under the Right to information Act to obtain such documents or information on such ordinances, Acts, regulations, formats and set of instructions. Those can directly be obtained though the web site. Moreover, if need further clarification on these matters it can be obtained through your nearest Labour office. Telephone numbers of all the Labour offices have been published on the web site. (This is not included disclosing the information to the media.)
