Through this project we will describe and quantify the various labor organizations within the field of arts and culture. Central questions will be: Which hiring/contract arrangements are common and is the balance between these various arrangements changing? Which factors are important for the members’ rights and safety in the labor market? Which services do the organizations offer their members and is it possible to extend the cooperation between organizations?
The last few years the administration of temporary employment, either through temp agencies or hired directly, has been under discussion. Fafo has been commissioned by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs to examine whether there is need to clarify today's legal framework on this area. The report will also discuss whether current mechanisms for upholding the law are sufficient.
Fafo will be examining how employees of child welfare provideres within the private sector can be secured the same wage, work and pension conditions as their colleagues in public sector. The report will also outline possible consequences of various measures. Samfunnsøkonomisk analyse and advokatfirmaet Bull og co are project partners. The Norwegian Ministry of Children and Equality has commisioned the project.
Åsmund Arup Seip will on behalf of Skills Norway map schemes and regulations that encourage post-qualifying and continuing education and training programs, by examining a selection of collective agreements.
In this project Niri Talberg will examine courses supported by The Norwegian Association for Adult Learning. What are the benefits for the participants?
During the last decades, it have been raised questions about the role of private actors in the public welfare services. This project, that is done in cooperation between Fafo and Economics Norway, will map potential differences between services from public and private providers. Another point in the discussion has been the authorities' ability to control private actors.
Fafo will be part of a new project that includes a survey among skilled workers in construction techniques, health-service and childhood and youth development. One of the questions is whether the employees consider their competence to be relevant for their work. Kaja Regård (pictured), Mathilde Bjørnset and Torgeir Nyen are in the project-team.
Centre for Senior Policy have launched a campaign called #the15best. The focus in on older workers and late career decisions, and how “the 15 next years can be the 15 best of their careers”. Anne Inga Hilsen at Fafo will interview older workers that have changed job one or several times after they turned 50.
The project will provide a history of 100 years of LO's legal department, 1922-2022. The book will show the development of the office's work; the lawyer's cooperation with the authorities and participation in international cooperation; work with the working environment legislation; and the development of labour law practice.
Wage formation in the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway and Sweden has several similarities, but does also in some aspects differ. In this project Fafo will look into the different national models. It will be conducted by Kristin Alsos and Kristine Nergaard on behalf of five national unions in Sweden.
