Goals of labour law and work environment

The objective for working life policy is to ensure good working conditions and opportunities for development in the workplace for both women and men.

Working life policy consists of three sub-areas: work environment, labour legislation and wage formation. Below are the objectives for each area:

  • A working environment that guards against ill health, accidents and prevents people being excluded from work, takes account of people's different circumstances and contributes to the development of both individuals and the organisation.
  • Labour legislation that lays the foundations for working life that meets both employees' and employers' needs for flexibility, security and influence.
  • Wage formation that is consistent with macroeconomic balance and industrial peace.
