09 March 2017
The use of temporary employment allows enterprises to adjust their workforces to changing circumstances. However, an over-reliance on the use of temporary workers can lead to productivity challenges, both for individual firms and for the overall economy. Legislation governing the use of temporary contracts plays an important role in influencing firms’ decisions on how intensively to rely on temporary labour.
Violence and Harassment at Work
Violence and Harassment against Women and Men in the World of Work-Trade Union Perspective and Action
08 March 2017
Violence against women and men in the world of work is an abuse of power that affects the most marginalised workers. Women are disproportionately affected where unequal power relations, low pay, non-standard working conditions and other workplace abuses expose them to violence in the world of work. This report draws on the work of Global Union Federations and 35 national case studies from different sectors and countries across the world to show that through collective agreements, workplace policies and negotiations, campaigns and awareness raising, trade unions have taken constructive steps to tackle violence in the world of work. A key objective of the report is to promote a systematic approach to prevention and elimination of violence and harassment at work and to inform trade unions in building a strong position for the development of a standard-setting item at the International Labour Conference in 2018.
