  • Nordic Conference on The Working Conditions of Tomorrow,

    6. November 2019  23:00 - 7. November 2019  23:00
    Reykjavik, Iceland

    Nordic conference on:
    The Working Conditions of Tomorrow
    – what are the implications for the work environment and labour markets?
    7th of November 2019
    Grand Hotel, Reykjavik, Iceland

    In recent years, there have been major changes in the Icelandic and Nordic labour markets, which have become more complicated than ever before. In most places in the Nordic countries, the labour market is characterized by high demand for manpower, partly due to the high growth in the tourism industry and the construction industry in recent years. This has created new challenges in the labour market due to large influx of foreign labour, fixed-term employment and employees with varied forms of employment.

    At the conference, a focus will be on the future changes in the labour market that may affect the working environment and working conditions. The conference will discuss both how to contribute to active and targeted efforts in the field of health and safety at work, and how to work across national borders to eliminate social dumping and labour crime, where companies exploit the ignorance and vulnerability of foreign employees in Icelandic and the Nordic labour market.

    The conference is a part of the Icelandic presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers 2019 and will be organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Affairs - Félagsmálaráðuneytið, Administration of Occupational Safety and Health – Vinnueftirlitið and the Directorate of Labour - Vinnumálastofnun.

    The conference is free of charge and open to the public, but registration is necessary.

    The preliminary program is to be found here.

    What? The working conditions of tomorrow
    Where? Sigtún 38, 105 Reykjavík
    When? 7.11.2019 8:30
