12 December 2017
E-006746/2017(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Thyssen on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-006746/2017

In accordance with Article 15 of Directive 2009/38/EC on the establishment of a European Works Council (EWC), the Commission launched an evaluation of the implementation of the directive, based on a comprehensive study and focusing on the impact of the new rules and modifications introduced by the recast.

The outcome of this evaluation is envisaged to be presented in early 2018 and it will be reported to the Parliament, the Council and the Economic and Social Committee.

The report will specifically assess the extent to which the recast Directive has achieved its goals, notably whether the implementation of the recast Directive has been effective in encouraging the creation of more EWCs, enhancing the effectiveness of employees’ transnational information and consultation, and increasing legal certainty.
