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.

According to a note regarding the basic characteristics of the active population employed during the year 2020, the percentage of Moroccans who do not have an employment contract reached 43.2% for women compared to 58.2% for men; these percentages were 43% and 58% in 2019.

During the year 2020, nearly a quarter of the employed population (24.7%) benefited from employment-based health insurance (36.6% in cities and 8.2% in rural areas). In 2019, these percentages were 36.4% and 7.8% respectively.
