Protection against acts of interference for employers' and workers' organizations: Evidence from the updated IRLex database

Acts of interference can take many forms and may impact differently on workers’ and employers’ organizations and on their free and independent creation and functioning. International Labour Standards protect employers’ and workers’ organizations against interference both by each other and by the public authorities. This IRLex factsheet provides an overview of how protection against acts of interference is regulated by relevant ILO Conventions and applied in practice through the ILO supervisory system as well as a comparative analysis of how different legal systems provide protection against such acts and ensure its effective enforcement in practice.
