Threshold / Standard
Employment is work or occupational activities to which one is used or being paid wage/salary. Short term refers to gainful engagement between 1 to12 months?; long term is an engagement with tenure more than one year. Engagement that is less than 1 month, in this case, shouldn't be considered as employment. Eligible workforce refers to the number of people of working age and below retirement age who are expected to be actively in the gainful work activities or are actively seeking employment.
Guidance on phases
Phase 1: Update the estimated number and characteristics of persons whose employment is affected by the crisis to establish the scale of impact. Update the emergency responses and other measures that has employment generation and estimate the coverage. Undertake rough and quick hazard mapping and conflict analysis and ensure that short and long term employment are crisis sensitive; Phase 3: Verify the estimations with formal records when necessary triangulate with field data and third party analysis. Document information and share with recovery and development partners to ensure sustainable recovery support; Phase 4: Conduct in depth sectoral analysis
Guidance for pre-crisis/baseline
Census or other formal records on percentage of employment, usually at the labour statistics, statistics office, or at the general administration office, to the extent possible disaggregated by type/sector and gender. Determine impact of the crisis on employment differentiated by types/sectors. Determine possible sectors that might require labour intensive work through e.g. cash for work. Determine level of demand for goods and services; Document month by moth inflation.
