Seychelles: Labour Regulation

Regulatory Environment

The main concern of employment legislation in the Seychelles is to improve the skill levels and employment prospects of the local work-force: the increasingly sophisticated requirements of the international businesses that the Government has succeeded in attracting to the country tend to suck in foreign workers to the detriment of local employment. This is also true of the more entrepreneurial Seychellois themselves, who start companies and then need to employ foreigners when the skills they need cannot be found locally. It is obviously a difficult thing for a population of 95,000 that was until quite recently predominantly agrarian to supply the range of skills needed by modern business.
