Risk of precariousness in the public sector

15-02-2017

This note analyses the size of the public sector, employment patterns and job quality. It takes into account dimensions of working conditions reported in the European Working Conditions Surveys from 2010 and 2015. Analysis shows considerable variety in the size of the public sector across Europe. The structure of contract forms in the public sector differs marginally from the private sector. However, there is evidence that working conditions are generally better. The note has been prepared by Policy ...

European Pillar of Social Rights

11-01-2017

The European Union (EU) Member States have defined common social rights and minimum standards in a wide range of labour market-related areas, and have committed to promoting employment and social progress. However, economic and social inequalities are still on the rise. The European Commission's plan for a European Pillar of Social Rights calls for two main actions: modernising existing legislation to better fit the present reality of the world of work and societal patterns, and developing employment ...

The European Union (EU) Member States have defined common social rights and minimum standards in a wide range of labour market-related areas, and have committed to promoting employment and social progress. However, economic and social inequalities are still on the rise. The European Commission's plan for a European Pillar of Social Rights calls for two main actions: modernising existing legislation to better fit the present reality of the world of work and societal patterns, and developing employment and social benchmarks in order to foster upward convergence in the euro area and potentially beyond. Parliament is due to consider an own-initiative report on the subject at its January 2017 plenary session.

Differences in Men's and Women's Work, Care and Leisure Time

15-03-2016

The economic crisis has profoundly affected the labour market and private life of men and women. This study examines the interrelation of policies with the ways women and men allocate time to paid work, care and leisure and the gendered outcomes produced in different socio-economic and cultural settings. It shows that policies are powerful tools which contribute to a better work-life balance and transform gender roles in accordance to the targets of EU2020 strategy and EU28 commitment to gender equality ...

Trends in female employment

26-10-2015

Statistics and research results show that over the past decade, despite the economic and financial downturn, the EU's labour market has witnessed an increase in women's employment rates. Women's employment seems to be more resilient to the economic crisis then men's. This is partly due to long-term developments and institutional framework changes, as well as to women's tendency to work in particular sectors and accept flexible working arrangements (e.g. part-time work, teleworking). Despite the general ...

Statistics and research results show that over the past decade, despite the economic and financial downturn, the EU's labour market has witnessed an increase in women's employment rates. Women's employment seems to be more resilient to the economic crisis then men's. This is partly due to long-term developments and institutional framework changes, as well as to women's tendency to work in particular sectors and accept flexible working arrangements (e.g. part-time work, teleworking). Despite the general upward trend, however, women's employment rates vary by Member State, age, social group, and educational level. Even though international and EU legislation takes account of women's situation in the labour market, and the EU dedicates a substantial amount of analytical work to it, a number of challenges remain unresolved. Examples include the need to harmonise retirement schemes taking into account specific characteristics of women's careers; to better reconcile work and family life through more flexible employment arrangements; but the improvement and recognition of women's skills, the equal treatment of domestic work and migrant workers, and the further closing of the gender pay gap are likewise important.

European Semester: 2015 priorities and beyond

22-10-2015

The European Semester is a key monitoring element of the EU's economic governance framework which aims to detect, prevent, and correct problematic economic trends such as excessive government deficits or public debt levels. As part of the annual evaluation cycle, the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) Committee notes insufficient implementation of country-specific recommendations in some Member States, and expresses concerns that economic recovery may be threatened by the ...

The European Semester is a key monitoring element of the EU's economic governance framework which aims to detect, prevent, and correct problematic economic trends such as excessive government deficits or public debt levels. As part of the annual evaluation cycle, the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) Committee notes insufficient implementation of country-specific recommendations in some Member States, and expresses concerns that economic recovery may be threatened by the EU's underlying structural weaknesses and regional differences. On 21 October 2015, the European Commission proposed to 'revamp' the European Semester process and to better align recommendations for the overall EU/euro area with those for individual Member States.

Social Protection Rights of Economically Dependent Self-Employed Workers

08-05-2013

The study analyses the role of economically dependent self-employed workers in the labour market by taking institutional factors into account, such as labour law and social protection rights. In addition to setting out the reasons for the increase of dependent self-employed workers, the authors provide case studies across various sectors of selected EU Member States. While the phenomenon of dependent self-employment is highly diverse across EU Member States, it has become increasingly important and ...

The study analyses the role of economically dependent self-employed workers in the labour market by taking institutional factors into account, such as labour law and social protection rights. In addition to setting out the reasons for the increase of dependent self-employed workers, the authors provide case studies across various sectors of selected EU Member States. While the phenomenon of dependent self-employment is highly diverse across EU Member States, it has become increasingly important and can be regarded as part of a general trend towards increasing labour market flexibilisation.
