Introduction

Introduction

Labour inspection is an essential part of the labour administration system, carrying out the fundamental function of enforcement and effective compliance with labour legislation. Labour inspection has a two-fold nature: on the one hand it secures the enforcement of the legal provisions relating to conditions of work and the protection of workers while engaged in their work, such as provisions relating to hours of work, wages, maternity protection, but also occupational safety and health, the employment of young persons, and other connected matters. On the other hand, labour inspection provides technical information and advice to employers and workers concerning the most effective means of complying with the legal provisions. This dual nature means that labour inspection plays a key role to ensure fairness in the workplace and good governance of the labour market. The conditions under which labour inspection operates have changed dramatically in recent decades due to technological and economic developments and the effects of globalization. In this context, labour inspection must redefine its organization and intervention strategies, so that it can better respond to the expectations raised by the evolving labour markets.
