Working conditions (2020)

EU wants to improve workers’ rights and working conditions across Europe, from working hours and parental leave to health and safety at work.

The EU has put in place a set of labour rules to ensure strong social protection. They include minimum requirements on working conditions - such as working time, part-time work, workers’ rights - to information about important aspects of their employment and the posting of workers. They have become one of the cornerstones of Europe's social policies.

In 2020, the European Commission published a Communication on A New Industrial Strategy for Europe. This strategy mentions that new forms of work must come with modern and improved forms of protections, including for those working on online platforms.
