Strengthening Labor Law Enforcement

This project enhances governments’ capacity to create, implement, and monitor the application of labor laws by working with ministries of labor, labor judges, and other judicial labor authorities. It seeks to use data collected from labor inspections to identify gaps that facilitate violations and to support legal reforms to address them. The project also uses data analytics to identify and combat labor inspection corruption, waste and inefficiency, and identifies regional inspection units in need of training and capacity building.

Leveraging Data to Build an Efficient Labor Market in the Northern Triangle

All economies, whether in the United States or in Central America’s Northern Triangle (El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras), need timely, accurate information to fuel efficiencies in their labor markets.

This project will seek to strengthen labor market information systems in the Northern Triangle to create useful labor market intelligence -- helping workers to find jobs, employers to fill the skills gap and economies to grow.
