Legal Indicators for Decent Work

These "Legal indicators for decent work" represent shortcuts to the information contained in the database on the legal framework for decent work in the area of working time, maternity protection and minimum wages, for all countries covered by this database. They form part of the indicators developed for the measurement of decent work.

The relevant indicators are:
• for maternity protection: maternity leave (including weeks of leave, replacement rate and coverage), paternity and parental leave
• for working time: maximum hours of work and paid annual leave;
• for minimum wages: minimum wage setting procedure and level (please note that while the decent work indicators in this regard refer to the statutory minimum wage, the database includes minimum wages as provided for by collective agreements).

By selecting the respective categories and a country/countries yourself, you can retrieve the same information under “browse by category”.
