WageIndicator Foundation - Labour Law

WageIndicator Foundation aims to assist individual workers and employers with real wage data during negotiations and job search; workers, employers and labour inspectors with comprehensive insight in national Labour Law, and how to comply with the law; and individual workers and employers with problems of daily working life. The national WageIndicator websites function as online, up to date labour market libraries for workers, employers, governments, academics and media alike.

WageIndicator collects and explains labour laws from 129 countries in their local languages. To collect this data, WageIndicator checks government websites and other legal sources, and local WageIndicator staff monitors changes.
