OECD Criticises Swedish Labor Laws

Published tisdag 11 oktober 2005 kl 12.23

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development criticizes the Swedish pension system, as well as the effect of current labor laws on opportunities for older people to work.

The industrial world think tank has published a series of reports on aging and employment practices in its member countries. The overall message is that living longer must mean working longer. Arguing that older workers are a valuable resource, the OECD says many public policies and workplace practices discourage older people from carrying on work.

While praising Sweden’s relatively high employment rates and recent changes in the pension system, the OECD says too many older people are on long-term sick leave and criticizes the “first-in, last-out” employment protection law for reducing the mobility of older workers.
