 Subject:  Support for employees with a terminal illness: Dying to Work EU campaign
 Answer in writing 

The Dying to Work EU campaign aims to secure stronger workplace protections and support for employees with a terminal illness. People with a terminal illness often choose to stay in employment for a range of reasons and importantly because of the dignity and positive impact on self-esteem and identity that positive employment provides.

What specific research is the Commission conducting, or has it conducted, on the experience in the workplace of employees with a terminal illness?

What does the Commission intend to do to encourage employers to provide support to workers with a terminal illness?

Will the Commission agree to meet with representatives of the Dying to Work EU campaign, including Members of the European Parliament working on the campaign, to discuss these matters further?
