At a time when Morocco is accelerating the pace and redoubling efforts in order to ensure social welfare for all citizens, a report issued by the High Commission for Planning (HCP) stated that more than half of working Moroccans (55.2%) do not have an employment contract that regulates their relations with their employer, and sets out terms and conditions of employment.

The report also emphasized that more than a quarter (26.4%) work under indefinite duration contracts (CDI), 12.2% under fixed-term contracts (CDD) and 6.2% under oral employment contracts.
