Hearings, Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes, posters and contributions from speakers.

Welcome words
 
 

Welcome to the website of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL Committee), of which I am the Chair.
 
The EMPL Committee is mainly responsible for employment policies and all aspects of social policy, working conditions, vocational training and the free movement of workers and pensioners.
 
The EMPL Committee consists of 55 members representing the various political groups in the European Parliament. The Committee's functioning is ensured by the Chair, 4 Vice-Chairs and the coordinators appointed by the political groups, in order to link the committee's work with the priorities of the respective political family.
 
The EMPL Committee closely works with the Council, the European Commission, other institutions and representatives of the civil society to influence and to determine the legislative framework in the areas for which it is responsible. During this legislative term, these areas cover a broad range of activities, such as the fight against unemployment, in particular youth unemployment, the fight against precarious jobs, the tackling of situations of abuse, such as undeclared work or the circumvention of laws designed at protecting employees, or the improvement of rules on health and safety at work.
 
Our site is updated regularly to keep you informed of our Committee's activities. You can also follow our meetings online via EPLive.
 
Enjoy your visit!
