Labour law and work environment
Labour law and work environment concern the conditions in working life. The area also includes issues concerning wage formation and mediation in labour disputes. Fair working conditions and a good working environment contribute to high productivity in the Swedish economy, which is distinguished by high labour force participation and a high employment rate. No one who works in Sweden should have a job that exploits them or wears them out. No one should have to risk death or serious injury at work.
