Assessment of Ethiopia's Labor Inspection System

The U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of International Labor Affairs, prepared a major study in March 2013 titled "Assessment of Ethiopia's Labor Inspection System" requested by Ethiopia's Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. The authors were Jeff Wheeler and Keith Goddard with the U.S. Department of Labor.

This highly specialized study looked at the following issues:
  • What is the inspectorates' mandate?
  • What are the characteristics of a well-functioning labor inspectorate?
  • What are the characteristics of Ethiopia's labor inspectorates?
  • What actions may the inspectorates take to improve labor compliance? 
This study may have relevance for other developing countries that are trying to improve the practice of their labor inspectorates.
