The World Employment Confederation-Europe contributed to the two EU Social Partners’ first stage consultations on the Written Statement Directive and on Access to Social Protection, providing policy recommendations but also best-practices from the employment industry.
As a complementary contribution to the debate at EU level, the World Employment Confederation-Europe published in July a position paper on the 20 principles of the EU Pillar of Social Rights, showcasing the role of the employment industry but also calling upon EU policy makers to respect the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality.
Topics linked to the EU Pillar of Social Rights have also been discussed during the Strategic Dialogue event “Building a competitive and futureproof labour market”, which was held on 21 June. A conference report is available.
