The Employment issue describes a world where nations attain sustained and robust employment situation that boost shared prosperity and social cohesion by providing decent and inclusive work for women and men across all working-age groups. Persons of any age, race or origin − including those from most vulnerable groups − are effectively protected from forced labour, human trafficking, or other slavery-like practices. The Employment issue is strongly aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals 8 and 10.

As proxies to measure the state of the Employment issue, the GAPFRAME includes the following publicly available indicators: job security (OECD, 2015) representing the percentage of employees under risk of losing job, youth unemployment (World Bank, 2010-2015), unemployment rate (SSI, 2014), and slave labor (The Global Slavery Index, 2016) which represents proportion of the population in modern slavery.
