It was World Day for Decent Work on 7 October

At least 131 countries worldwide provide legislation to protect workers against inhumane labour practices. A recent international comparison by the WageIndicator Foundation reveals that the majority of countries seem to agree on what constitutes Decent Work and have enacted legislation to promote ILO’s Decent Work Agenda. However, laws are just a part of the story towards attaining decent work. Implementation and compliance is the key. This comparison is based on the WageIndicator’s Decent Work Check, which compares the de-jure provisions with international labour standards and ranks countries’ labour laws.

On this Day, WageIndicator Foundation has worked on a comparative Labour Law map which covers all aspects of decent work (33 indicators) and covers 131 countries. Kindly check here for the map.

A press release comparing these 131 countries along various indicators can be accessed here.
