Abstract: This study was carried out in Kampala district. It covered employment in the formal private sector organizations in various sectors ranging from educational, health to constructional services. The major objectives of this study was to examine the private sector development and its implication in determining the employment conditions under which the employees in the formal private sector organizations worked, the existing laws and regulations governing the working conditions in private sector organizations, the existing government interventions and also sought the effective policy recommendations for better employment conditions in the formal private sector Organizations The study employed both qualitative and quantitative approaches; the interview and a structured questionnaire were respectively used. The respondents in this study were both the employers and employees in the private sector organizations. Central Government officials were also interviewed. The formal private sector organizations included International Hospital Kampala, Top Hill Academy, Maganjo Grain Millers and ZZimwes Construction Company. This study was based on a theory that the private sector development has contributed greatly to increased employment opportunities particularly and economic development generally. Through this study I was able to realize that the structural adjustment policies/ programmes created and helped the growth of formal private sector organizations among other factors. It was also found out that although the private sector organizations have contributed remarkably in employment creation, the terms and conditions of work in these sectors still need a lot of improvement.
