Wages, working time, work organization, maternity protection and arrangements to adapt working life to the demands of life outside work are core elements of the employment relationship and of workers' protection. They are major dimensions of human resources management at the enterprise level, collective bargaining and social dialogue as well as socio-economic policies of governments. INWORK develops comparative analysis and provides technical assistance to ILO constituents in these areas.
