World labor body adopts rule against sudden firing

The International Labor Organization (ILO) overwhelmingly adopted a new convention that would give workers added protection against sudden or arbitrary dismissal.

Member states must now decide whether to ratify the code. If they do, it becomes binding in that country under international law.
