ILO helps judges fight sex discrimination
A week-long course organized by the International Labour Organization, the ILO, brought together 25 judges from Botswana, Malawi, Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia for training in international labour law.
It can take as long as three years for sacked employees living with HIV or AIDS to resolve their cases in Botswana's industrial courts, says the ILO.
By that time they may have died, according to one Botwanan judge.
The aim of the course was to provide court professionals with the knowledge they need of international labour law, so they can apply it when dealing with gender issues in their courts.
