Overview 

The labour legislations are not enforced effectively in practice and very few legal reforms were approved in recent years. A monitoring system of the country’s compliance of the international labour standards is not fully operating. Point often overlooked is that the labour regulations cover only the workers from the formal sector in practice, which constitutes a minority of the total employment: Around 80% of the total employment is operating in the unregulated, informal economy (trade, agriculture, daily unskilled labour). 

Togo has seven national trade union federations/centres and worker organizations are independent of the government and political parties.
