Labour market legislation
In many other countries the labour market is regulated by legislation, but in Sweden there are, for example, no laws which regulate salaries and wages. The regulations are framed as a result of voluntary agreements and negotiations between unions, which represent employees, and employer organisations. There is however some legislation which applies to the labour market. It is, for example, possible for an employee to negotiate improved terms and conditions. It is, however, not possible to make an agreement which results in poorer conditions for employees in a workplace.
