New Commission proposal for a Directive on transparent and predictable working conditions in the EU


The proposed Directive  aims to improve information on working conditions across the EU. It will complement and modernise the existing obligations when it comes to inform workers about their working conditions by creating new minimum standards to ensure they benefit from a more clear and predictable information.

The proposal would need to be adopted by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. At a later stage, it would also need to be implemented by the Member States, either through legislation or by social partners’ collective agreements. This initiative is one of the Commission’s actions to implement the European Pillar of Social Rights , which was proclaimed at the Social Summit for Fair Jobs and Growth in Gothenburg in November 2017.
