Background on the topic

This Standard addresses the topic of employment.

This includes an organization’s approach to employment or job creation, that is, an organization’s approach to hiring, recruitment, retention, and related practices, and the working conditions it provides. The Standard also covers the employment and working conditions in an organization’s supply chain.

An employment relationship is a legal relationship between a worker and an organization that confers rights and obligations to both parties. This relationship is usually the means for determining whether employment or labor law is applicable or whether commercial law is applicable.

These concepts are covered in key instruments of the International Labour Organization, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the United Nations: see the Bibliography.
