This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees. After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication skills'. At the end of the hearings process, Parliament votes on the proposed Commission as a bloc, and under the Treaties may only reject the entire College of Commissioners, rather than individual candidates. The Briefing provides an overview of key issues in the portfolio areas, as well as Parliament's activity in the last term in that field. It also includes a brief introduction to the candidate.

Social protection in the EU: State of play, challenges and options

11-10-2018

Globalisation, technological change, an aging population and changes to the world of work have made securing social protection for all, i.e. economic and social security, a major challenge. When social protection systems work well, they can have a stabilising effect on the economy and promote socio-economic equality and stability. By contrast, inadequate or ineffective systems can exacerbate inequality. Indeed, improving the existing social protection systems is the priority of half of the principles ...

Globalisation, technological change, an aging population and changes to the world of work have made securing social protection for all, i.e. economic and social security, a major challenge. When social protection systems work well, they can have a stabilising effect on the economy and promote socio-economic equality and stability. By contrast, inadequate or ineffective systems can exacerbate inequality. Indeed, improving the existing social protection systems is the priority of half of the principles of the European Pillar of Social Rights – the European Commission's overarching social field initiative designed to serve as a compass for policies updating current labour market and welfare systems. While implementation of the 'social pillar' remains primarily the responsibility of the Member States, in close cooperation with the social partners, the European Commission has put forward several legislative and non-legislative initiatives to support this process in the area of social protection. These include the proposal for a recommendation on social protection for all, including non-standard workers, responding to calls from the European Parliament and the social partners and stakeholders. This proposal had the difficult task of addressing all the disagreements that had arisen during the two-phase consultation in the preparatory phase. While all parties seem to agree on the importance of adjusting social protection to the new realities of life and work, there are differences of opinion concerning the technicalities, such as the financing of schemes. This is in part a reflection of the current evidence that raises many questions as to the optimal response to the new challenges in very diverse systems of social protection across the Member States. The main trends currently include a combination of social protection and social investment, individualisation of social protection schemes and a potential move towards universal social protection, whereby social protection would be removed from the employment relationship. However, financing these schemes poses a challenge.

In dieser Studie (Originaltitel „The Social Protection of Workers in the Platform Economy“) wird auf Ersuchen des Ausschusses für Beschäftigung und soziale Angelegenheiten des Europäischen Parlaments der soziale Schutz der in der Plattformwirtschaft tätigen Personen untersucht. In dem Bericht werden die Literatur und die früheren Forschungsarbeiten zur Plattformwirtschaft analysiert, um diese zu definieren und eine Typologie zum Verständnis ihrer Art und Beschaffenheit zu entwickeln. Es werden das Wachstum und die Akteure der Plattformwirtschaft sowie die Vorteile und Herausforderungen für die Arbeitnehmer erörtert. Zudem werden sowohl die Ergebnisse von 50 Befragungen, die mit beteiligten Sachverständigen in acht europäischen Ländern durchgeführt wurden, als auch die Ergebnisse einer ursprünglichen Umfrage, an der 1 200 in der Plattformwirtschaft tätigen Personen teilnahmen, beschrieben. Außerdem werden die verschiedenen normativen Ebenen analysiert, die berücksichtigt werden müssen, wenn die Herausforderungen im Bereich des sozialen Schutzes der in der Plattformwirtschaft tätigen Personen aus rechtlicher Sicht betrachtet werden. Schließlich werden in dem Bericht Schlussfolgerungen gezogen und Empfehlungen hinsichtlich Vereinbarungen ausgesprochen, wie den Arbeitnehmern in diesem wachsenden Wirtschaftssektor sozialer Schutz geboten werden kann.

This study, commissioned by the the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the Committee on Petitions, was prepared to assess the nature and extent of employment precariousness in the framework of EU’s fundamental rights and EU employment law. The analysis focuses on two broad areas, namely atypical forms of employment and franchising. The report identifies a number of ‘protective gaps’ at various levels of regulation and puts forward policy recommendations that are informed by the need to adopt holistic and comprehensive action for addressing what emerges as a constantly moving target.

Schutz von Seeleuten im Rahmen des Arbeitsrechts der Union

29-06-2015

Das Arbeitsrecht der Union gilt zwar allgemein für die Arbeitnehmer aller Wirtschaftszweige, allerdings können die Mitgliedstaaten Seeleute auf der Grundlage mehrerer Richtlinien von bestimmten Vorschriften des Arbeitnehmerschutzes ausnehmen, was dazu geführt hat, dass Seeleute in verschiedenen Ländern ungleich behandelt werden, und was Auswirkungen auf den Wettbewerb in der Schifffahrt nach sich zieht. Die Kommission legte 2013 einen Vorschlag für eine Änderungsrichtlinie vor, um ein höheres Schutzniveau ...

Die Kommission legte 2013 einen Vorschlag für eine Änderungsrichtlinie vor, um ein höheres Schutzniveau in Bezug auf die Rechte zu gewährleisten, die auf der Grundlage der Charte der Grundrechte der EU durch das Arbeitsrecht der EU geschützt werden, um die Qualität der Arbeitsplätze im maritimen Sektor zu verbessern und um auf der Ebene der EU für einheitliche Wettbewerbsbedingungen in diesem Sektor zu sorgen.
