Press conference by László Andor on the adoption of a directive to improve application of workers' rights to free movement in the EU

40 views

On 26 April 2013, László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, held a press conference on the measures proposed by the European Commission to ensure the better application of EU law on people's right to work in another Member State and so make it easier for people to exercise their rights in practice. Currently there is a persistent problem with public and private employers' lack of awareness of EU rules, regardless of whether the national legislation is compliant or not. This lack of awareness or understanding of the rules is a major source of discrimination based on nationality. People also consider that they do not know where to turn to in the host Member State when faced with problems concerning their rights to free movement. The proposal aims to overcome these obstacles and to help to prevent discrimination against workers on the basis of nationality by proposing practical solutions.
