WageIndicator creates DecentWorkChecks. Currently (2017) these are operational and put online in almost 100 countries, together with a standard selection of the national labour laws. However, there remain dozens more countries to go. As we proceed, finding labour law information online gets harder. Therefore WageIndicator urgently calls upon Law Graduates to assist in this effort. All our volunteers have the language skills needed to create easy to understand content on local labour legislation. For the list of countries that are covered already, please visit www.decentworkcheck.org.  Assistance in reviewing and updating published labour law content is also greatly appreciated.

Publish labour law information as a first step to increase awareness Increased awareness about labour rights arguably helps to enforce decent labour standards. The DecentWorkCheck, an online comparative tool developed by WageIndicator, fills information gaps with the aim to increase labour rights awareness as a first step. Informed individuals - whether a worker, self-employed, employee, employer, policy maker, or labour inspector – are more likely to ask for their rights (as a worker),  comply with the rules (as an employer), strive to enforce these (as a labour inspector) and try to foster proper legislation (as a policy maker).

Towards global coverage in 2019: In 2016 alone, 40 million Internet users visited 92 WageIndicator country websites to access labour law and other related information. We aim to increase our outreach to 160 countries by the end of 2019, i.e. approaching global coverage.

AIAS annual conference 'Wages in Global Perspective' - September 1 - Amsterdam

This year the annual conference of AIAS is referring to the achievement and potential of a global data tool with which AIAS is closely connected, that is, the WageIndicator. This Internet-based tool of comparing and sharing wages resulted from a joint initiative of WageIndicator Foundation director Paulien Osse and AIAS research coordinator Kea Tijdens back in 1999. Over the years, AIAS has played its role in the Foundation’s Supervisory Board.
Register here (deadline 15 August).
