New research sets out how young people, people with disabilities, Travellers and East European migrants are at much higher risk of disadvantage around employment and have less access to what the International Labour Organisation defines as decent work. The report entitled “Monitoring Decent Work in Ireland” sets out how these groups have seen consistent inequalities in access to employment, job security and seniority.

The new research published by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (‘the Commission’) and the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI)  holds insights for Ireland’s post-COVID work environment, by looking at the realities of people’s access to Decent Work before the pandemic.

A webinar was held on Wednesday 2 June 2021, where researchers presented the key findings from the report. To view ESRI webinars, check out our Youtube channel.
