Employment Flexibility Index 2019

30 January 2019

The Employment Flexibility Index 2019 of the member states of the European Union (EU) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) provides a comparative quantitative analysis of labor regulation flexibility.

The Index is intended to promote broader debates on labor market regulation and the importance of flexible employment. The Index was first introduced in 2018 and has already proven to be a useful tool not only for comparison and benchmarking, but also as a means of monitoring and evaluating applicable national practices and ongoing labor law reforms at the regional level.

The Employment Flexibility Index is based on the data gathered by the World Bank in conducting its annual Doing Business report. The Employment Flexibility Index covers the rules of hiring, working hours, redundancy rules and redundancy costs. The report also offers EU member state profiles and highlights their key scores and regulatory practices.
