Building a stronger social Europe

Commission welcomes agreement between EU Member States on key files for a more social Europe


Last week EU Member States reached an agreement on three legislative files which are a cornerstone of building a stronger social Europe. The agreement reached at the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumers (EPSCO) Council concerns the revision of the rules governing: social security coordination; a new work-life balance directive and a directive on transparent and predictable working conditions.

The European Union provides rules on the coordination of social security systems to determine which system a mobile citizen is subject to. The rules prevent a person from being left without social protection, or having double coverage in a cross-border situation. On 13 December 2016, the Commission proposed to update the legislation to facilitate free movement of workers and protect their rights, while reinforcing the tools for national authorities to fight risks of abuse or fraud. The Commission's proposal for a European Labour Authority will complement and facilitate the implementation of the rules on social security coordination to ensure fair labour mobility.

The Commission put forward a proposal for a new directive on work-life balance for parents and carers on 26 April 2017. As one of the key deliverables of the European Pillar of Social Rights, this initiative sets a number of new or higher minimum standards for parental, paternity and carer's leave. 

The proposal for a new directive for more transparent and predictable working conditions across the EU, adopted on 21 December 2017, is also part of the follow-up to the European Pillar of Social Rights. The proposal complements and modernises existing obligations to inform all workers of their working conditions.
