Covid-19 Newsletter 2: Exit strategy

03-07-2020

As EU Member States embark on a cautious de-confinement path, the economy slides into recession and the question of the proportionality of public health-related measures and their economic consequences is increasingly present in the public debate. As long as a vaccine (or an effective treatment) for the Covid-19 disease is not found and deployed, post-Covid-19 societies will have to coexist with the virus, and find an equilibrium between the social constraints resulting from health protecting measures ...

As EU Member States embark on a cautious de-confinement path, the economy slides into recession and the question of the proportionality of public health-related measures and their economic consequences is increasingly present in the public debate. As long as a vaccine (or an effective treatment) for the Covid-19 disease is not found and deployed, post-Covid-19 societies will have to coexist with the virus, and find an equilibrium between the social constraints resulting from health protecting measures and the need to mitigate as much as possible a huge economic shock, which if not addressed adequately, could have unpredictable social and political consequences. The Covid-19 crisis has shown above all the importance of joint European action. Although public health is primarily the competence of the Member States, the European Parliament has called on the Commission and the Member States to act together and to rise to the challenge and ensure that the Union emerges stronger from this crisis. In particular, a differentiated but coordinated post-lockdown approach in the EU should be ensured, in order to avoid a resurgence of the virus. The present Covid-19 Newsletter focuses on the de-confinement strategies and EU measures to support the economic recovery. An update of ongoing Covid-19 related expertise work for the ECON, EMPL, ENVI, ITRE and IMCO committees is provided at the end of this document.

Veiligheid en gezondheid op het werk

01-05-2018

Sinds de jaren tachtig van de twintigste eeuw besteedt de EU veel aandacht aan het verbeteren van de gezondheid en veiligheid op het werk. Met de invoering van wetgeving op Europees niveau zijn minimumnormen vastgelegd voor de bescherming van werknemers. Dit belet de lidstaten echter niet om strengere maatregelen te handhaven of in te voeren. Toen het Handvest van de grondrechten van de Europese Unie juridisch bindend werd met de inwerkingtreding van het Verdrag van Lissabon, kreeg het gezondheids ...

Sociale dialoog

De sociale dialoog is een fundamenteel onderdeel van het Europees sociaal model. De sociale partners (vertegenwoordigers van werkgevers en werknemers) hebben daarmee de mogelijkheid om onder meer via overeenkomsten actief bij te dragen aan de ontwikkeling van het Europees sociaal en arbeidsmarktbeleid.
