European Employment Service: Implementation Appraisal

23-06-2015

In 2014, 3.1 per cent (around 8.1 million) of the European labour force was economically active in another Member State. In Annex I to its annual Work Program 2015 (CWP 2015), the European Commission announced that in order to enhance a deeper and fairer internal market with a strengthened industrial base it will submit the Labour Mobility package. While aiming at supporting labour mobility, this package tackles three substantial issues: 1) A better coordination of social security systems, 2) A review of the Posting of Workers Directive and 3) An enhanced EURES (European Employment Services). This implementation appraisal focuses on the third theme of the expected Labour Mobility Package - EURES. In particular, it concentrates on legal acts in the field of labour mobility connected with EURES, especially, Regulation 492/2011 and Commission Implementing Decision 2012/733. 'Implementation Appraisals' aim to provide a succinct overview of material publicly available on the implementation, application and effectiveness of an EU law to date - drawing on available inputs from, inter alia, the EU institutions and advisory committees, national parliaments, and relevant external consultation and outreach exercises. They are provided to assist parliamentary committees in their consideration of the new Commission proposal, once tabled.
