The Institute of Labor Studies (ILS) research titled “Gap Analysis of ILO Convention No. 81 (Labour Inspection),” authored by ILS researcher Joyce Anne S. Lumactud, has recommended addressing gaps in the country’s existing labor inspection system in order to fulfill the requirements under the International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention No. 81 on Labor Inspection, known as the international standard for labor inspection in industrial and commercial establishments.

The role of Filipino youth in the workforce is foreseen to be vital in the next few years. The increasing number of youth in the labor force is envisioned to produce a new generation of workers who possess advanced skills such as IT, research, among others, that are highly needed by employers due to advances in technology. Further, technological advances are expected to increase demand for highly-skilled workers across age group, not just only on the youth group.
