Varje år förloras1,7 miljoner jobb inom EU på grund av insolvens, vilket uppstår när företag inte längre kan betala sina räkningar, och dess tillgångar måste användas för att betala skulder. Cirka 400 000 förlorade jobb beror på insolvens som berör mer än ett medlemsland. På onsdagen godkände ledamöter regler för dessa fall. Förslaget ger företag en ”andra chans”, som inte bara inbegriper att hantera konkurser, men också lösningar före insolvensen, så att fungerande företag kan överleva krisen.
