Economic migrants do not fall within the criteria for refugee status and are therefore not entitled to benefit from international protection as refugees. UNHCR Master Glossary of Terms, 2006 Rev.1 Employment Persons in employment comprise all persons above a specified age who during a specified brief period, either one week or one day, were in the following categories: - Paid employment; - Self-employment. OECD Glossary of Statistical Terms ILO definition ssary/detail.asp?ID=778 Employer A person who operates his or her own economic enterprise, or engages independently in a profession or trade, and hires one or more employees. Some countries may wish to distinguish among employers according to the number of persons they employ ILO International Classification by Status in Employment plv8/data/icsee.html Self- employment jobs Self-employment jobs are those jobs where the remuneration is directly dependent upon the profits (or the potential for profits) derived from the goods and services produced (where own consumption is considered to be part of profits). The incumbents make the operational decisions affecting the enterprise, or delegate such decisions while retaining responsibility for the welfare of the enterprise. (In this context "enterprise" includes one-person operations.) ILO International Classification by Status in Employment plv8/data/icsee.html Skill Skill is defined as the ability to carry out the tasks and duties of a given job. ILO definition Skill level Only a few broad "skill level" categories can usefully be identified for international comparisons. The 1976 version of the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) was used to define the ISCO-88 skill levels, but these definitions can easily be re-formulated with reference to the revised ISCED-1997. This formulation of the definitions does not mean, however, that skills can only be obtained by formal education or training. Most skills may be, and often are, acquired through experience and through informal training, although formal training plays a larger role in some countries than in others and a larger role at the higher skill levels than at the lower. For the purpose of the ISCO-88 classification system, determining how a job should be classified is based on the nature of the skills that are required to carry out the tasks and duties of the job not the way these skills are acquired. Nor is it relevant that the job incumbent may have skills not demanded by the job. ILO International Standard Classification of Occupations c/english/bureau/stat/is co/isco88/anc2.htm

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
