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.

13-03-2017

Job quality in Europe did not change significantly between 2010 and 2015 - this is the main result referring to reported objective, rather objective and subjective perceptions of working conditions in this dataset.

This note analyses patterns of job quality across types of employment as regards the dimensions of working conditions reported in the European Working Conditions Surveys from 2010 and 2015. Job quality in Europe did not change significantly between 2010 and 2015 - this is the main result referring to reported objective, rather objective and subjective perceptions of working conditions in this dataset. Full-time and part-time open-ended contracts as well as self-employment with employees continue to be associated with the lowest risk of precariousness whereas marginal-part-time work, fixed-term contracts and freelance work exhibit by a medium level of precariousness risks. The risk of precariousness is highest and tends to increase for temporary agency workers. The note has been prepared by Policy Department A at request of the Employment and Social Affairs Committee.

Empowering women in the EU and beyond: Labour market

02-03-2017

Equal access to the labour market is recognised as a cornerstone of women’s economic independence and participation in public life. The EU and its Member States have obligations to integrate those excluded from the labour market (Article 151 TFEU), advance gender equality in employment (Article 153 TFEU; Directive 2006/54/ EC), and ensure equal pay for work of equal value (Article 157 TFEU). All EU Member States have ratified the 1979 UN Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination ...

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 ...

At the request of the FEMM Committee, this note provides an overview of the existing gender-equality legislation and policies in the Netherlands, focussing on their recent developments and achievements. It covers a range of topics including participation in decision making and labour market, reconciliation of work and family life, eradication of gender-based violence, and women’s well-being. The Netherlands has a long tradition in emancipation policies and equality legislation. Important policy issues are the high part-time rate which translates in a relatively low participation rate in full time equivalents and the low share of women in top positions.
