International Labor Laws: NATLEX

How do countries around the world protect disabled workers, provide for social security and family leave, and restrict child labor?  Labor Day weekend is a great time to discover NATLEX, an International Labour Organization (ILO) database of labor and related human rights legislation covering 196 countries. Users can browse by country or topic to produce citations and descriptions of relevant laws, often with a link to the full text in English, French, or Spanish, ILO's three official languages. NATLEX makes every effort to keep current with new legislation. The "New in NATLEX" feature locates new legislation added this month and  each previous month for the past year, by country and topic. NATLEX is a key resource for comparative labor law research.
