Working Time Around the World
Trends in Working Hours, Laws and Policies in a Global Comparative Perspective
Working Time Around the World by Sangheon Lee
Book Description"Working Time Around the World: Trends in Working Hours, Laws and Policies in a Global Comparative Perspective" provides a global comparative analysis of working time laws, policies, and actual working hours. It finds that, despite a century-long optimism about reduced working hours and some progress in legal measures limiting them, differences in actual working hours between industrialised and developing countries remain considerable without any clear sign of hours being reduced.This publication examines working hours in the service sector and its subsectors, such as wholesale and retail trade, hotels and restaurants, and transport, storage and communications, as well as in the growing informal economy. It also considers how gender and age may help determine working time, and examines what influence legal standards may have on actual working hours in a number of countries. A set of policy suggestions that preserve health and safety, are family friendly, promote gender equality, enhance productivity, and facilitate workers choice and influence over their working hours are also put forward.
