The Central Eastern European Labour Legislation database (CEELEX) is a legal database containing labour and industrial relations related legal texts. It covers thirteen Central and Eastern European economies, including the five project economies. The ILO developed and continuously updates CEELEX with the purpose of providing a data platform to support informed policy making decisions with regard to labour and industrial relations.
It aims to identify national legal and institutional solutions set out in the national legal systems in Central and Eastern European countries using as benchmarks the provisions of ILO Conventions: Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organize Convention, 1948 (No. 87), Right to Organize and Collective Bargaining Convention, 1949 (No. 98), Equal Remuneration Convention, 1951 (No. 100), Discrimination (Employment and Occupation) Convention, 1958 (No. 111), Labour Relations (Public Service) Convention, 1978 (No. 151), Collective Bargaining Convention, 1981 (No. 154) , Tripartite Consultation (International Labour Standards) Convention, 1976 (No. 144), Termination of Employment Convention, 1982 (No. 158).
The ILO implemented ESAP 2 will support national legal experts to update CEELEX and generate knowledge in the field of labour and industrial relations based on the collected information.
CEELEX is regularly updated through a network of national legal experts.
