The publication presents an overview of bilateral agreements and other forms of labour recruitment of foreigners in a number of OECD countries (Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States) and in the Philippines and Romania.
The publication addresses a number of questions concerning worker recruitment agreements. Why do countries sign bilateral agreements? What kinds of workers are covered?
