During their meeting on 20 November 2014 in Brussels, the Employment and Social Affairs Committee discussed a report from the Commission on the application of the Directive on temporary agency work. The Committee also looked at the amendments on the opinion regarding the European Central Bank Annual report for 2013.
Study on Costs and Returns of Investments: Accommodation for People with Disabilities
This study has been prepared at the request of the EMPL Committee, to provide an overview of the policy measures in place to encourage and support the employment of people with disabilities and in particular: sheltered workshops; reasonable accommodations; alternative labour market policies; and Universal Design. The study provides information on developments on costs and returns of investment for these measures, detailed descriptions of the situation in six Member States (Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom) and an economic analysis of selected measures. Costs and returns of investments consist of the costs associated with the intervention, their effects (the extent to which the objectives have been achieved), and their benefits (the monetary value of the effects) – this may include intangible benefits such as quality of life as well as financial returns. The study will be presented to the Members by its authors.
On 20 November Members continued the discussion of the issue based on the 88 amendments tabled on the draft opinion of David Casa (EPP, MT). The adoption will take place during the EMPL meeting on 2 December.
Report from the Commission on Directive 2008/104/EC on temporary agency work
The purpose of this Directive is to ensure the protection of temporary agency workers and to improve the quality of temporary agency work by ensuring that the principle of equal treatment is applied to temporary agency workers, and by recognising temporary-work agencies as employers, while taking into account the need to establish a suitable framework for the use of temporary agency work with a view to contributing effectively to job creation and to the development of flexible forms of working. On 20 November the Commission presented the report reviewing Member States’ implementation of the Directive and the development since the publication of this report.
Dobrodošli na spletnem mestu Odbora za zaposlovanje in socialne zadeve (odbor EMPL), ki mu predsedujem.
Odbor EMPL je v glavnem pristojen za politike zaposlovanja in vse vidike socialne politike, delovnih pogojev, poklicnega izobraževanja in prostega pretoka delavcev in upokojencev.
Odbor sestavlja 55 članov, ki zastopajo različne politične skupine v Evropskem parlamentu. Za delovanje odbora skrbijo predsednik, štirje podpredsedniki in koordinatorji, ki jih imenujejo politične skupine, da bi povezale delo odbora s svojimi prednostnimi nalogami.
Odbor tesno sodeluje s Svetom, Evropsko komisijo, drugimi institucijami in predstavniki civilne družbe, da bi prispevali k oblikovanju zakonodajnega okvira na področjih, za katera je pristojen. V tem zakonodajnem obdobju ta zajemajo širok nabor dejavnosti, kot so boj proti brezposelnosti, zlasti med mladimi, boj proti prekarnemu delu in zlorabam, kot je neprijavljeno delo ali izogibanje zakonom, ki ščitijo delavce, in izboljšanje predpisov o zdravju in varnosti na delovnem mestu.
Naše spletno mesto redno posodabljamo in vas tako obveščamo o dejavnostih odbora. Poleg tega lahko naše seje spremljate na spletu prek storitve EPLive.
