European Platform for tackling undeclared work

23-03-2016

Undeclared work affects both the individual and society. It deprives workers of their necessary social and health protection and imposes precarious working conditions on them. At the same time, it creates unfair competition for companies, and damages public finances and social security systems. For these reasons, the European Commission proposed on 9 April 2014 the creation of a European Platform against undeclared work to support and coordinate the Member States' efforts in preventing, deterring ...

Undeclared work affects both the individual and society. It deprives workers of their necessary social and health protection and imposes precarious working conditions on them. At the same time, it creates unfair competition for companies, and damages public finances and social security systems. For these reasons, the European Commission proposed on 9 April 2014 the creation of a European Platform against undeclared work to support and coordinate the Member States' efforts in preventing, deterring and fighting undeclared work. Following a round of trilogue meetings at which the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council debated whether or not membership of the Platform should be mandatory for Member States, the extent of its competences and who its members should be, an agreement was forged which was subsequently adopted by Parliament in February 2016. Second edition. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

26-01-2016

Undeclared work affects both the individual – with less favourable health, social and working conditions – and society, through unfair competition, and implications for budgets and social security systems. On 9 April 2014, the European Commission proposed the creation of a European Platform against undeclared work, tasked with supporting and coordinating the Member States' efforts in preventing, deterring and fighting undeclared work.

Cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work: initial appraisal of the European Commission impact assessment

29-10-2014

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Commission proposal for a Decision on establishing a European Platform to enhance cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work. Overall, the impression is that the Initial Appraisal did not benefit from a sufficiently thorough assessment and analysis, in particular as regards the options and their impacts.

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Commission proposal for a Decision on establishing a European Platform to enhance cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work. Overall, the impression is that the Initial Appraisal did not benefit from a sufficiently thorough assessment and analysis, in particular as regards the options and their impacts. A more detailed and developed evidence base would have been helpful in contributing to a better understanding of the scale of the problem, in particular with regard to its cross-border dimension, and of the added value of cross-border mandatory cooperation between Member States in tackling undeclared work. This note, prepared by the Ex-Ante Impact Assessment Unit for the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs of the European Parliament, analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as additional factors identified by the Parliament in its Impact Assessment Handbook, appear to be met by the IA. It does not attempt to deal with the substance of the proposal. It is drafted for informational and background purposes to assist the relevant parliamentary committee(s) and Members more widely in their work.

Workers' conditions in the textile and clothing sector: just an Asian affair? Issues at stake after the Rana Plaza tragedy

15-08-2014

More than 70% of EU imports of textile and clothing come from Asia. Many Asian workers have to work in sweatshop conditions, but the issue appears in global media only when major fatal accidents occur, like that at Rana Plaza in Bangladesh, in 2013. Long working hours, low wages, lack of regular contracts, and systemically hazardous conditions are often reported. Trade unions, when allowed, are unable to protect workers.
