The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), is an international economic organisation of 34 countries.
The OECD promotes policies designed:
to achieve the highest sustainable economic growth and employment and a rising standard of living in Member countries, while maintaining financial stability, and thus to contribute to the development of the world economy;
– to contribute to sound economic expansion in Member as well as nonmember countries in the process of economic development; and
– to contribute to the expansion of world trade on a multilateral, nondiscriminatory basis in accordance with international obligations.
As an international organisation the terms of employment of the OECD Secretariat staff are not governed by the laws of the country in which their offices are located. Agreements with the host country safeguard the organisation’s impartiality with regard to the host and member countries. Hiring and firing practices, working hours and environment, holiday time, pension plans, health insurance and life insurance, salaries, expatriation benefits and general conditions of employment are managed according to rules and regulations associated with the OECD.
I’ll add more text about more specific regulations that benefit our world population of 7,000,000,000 human beings. Soon!
