This paper explores the relevance and effectiveness of achieving justice in the work place in Nigeria through the use of codes of conduct by Multinational Corporations. Codes of conduct express concerns of companies regarding their social responsibility and have become a popular business strategy for responding to multiple stakeholder concerns. In underdeveloped economies, voluntary codes acquire special importance because of the general weakness of domestic law. The paper addresses the question of implementation and enforcement of codes. It suggests the reflexive labour law theory approach and the introduction of grievance procedures as efficient means of linking self-regulation and law.
