The ILO Country Office in Beijing and MOHRSS organized a Research Seminar on Employment Injury Insurance for Workers in the Platform Economy aimed at sharing experiences and providing recommendations for a national regulatory framework for employment injury coverage of platform workers in China.
Worldwide, only 35.4% of the labour force is covered "by law" for employment injury insurance. The challenge of extending employment injury protection remains of high importance in many countries. In China, coverage of employment injury insurance (EII) is still relatively low when compared to the success in the expansion of coverage of employee pension schemes.
The GEIP works with national and regional actors to improve, audit or create the best employment injury insurance system for each country.
