Abstract

The unpaid labour is examined form negative and positive point of view. On one hand revealed are the effects of this kind of labour which generate poverty and some recommendations are made for their restriction. No the other hand attention is directed to its positive effects as a further regulator of market and administrative mechanisms for economic and social process management. Presented are measurements and valuations of unpaid labour which should aid its social and legal recognition with the purpose to bring the occupied with it out of the group of economic inactive persons and to create conditions for their social securitization. Given are wider measurements of the unpaid home labour because of its big relative share in the structure of unpaid labour and its serious contribution to the increase of poverty amongst women with children and work capable persons with great family (home) duties who have restricted access to the labour market due to them.
