László Andor, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion has welcomed the adoption by the International Labour Organization (ILO) of two new international instruments to combat forced labour, and the approval of important amendments to the ILO's Maritime Labour Convention.
The European Commission has proposed today the creation of a European Platform to improve cooperation at EU level in order to prevent and deter more effectively undeclared work, a phenomenon that causes serious damage to working conditions, fair competition and public budgets.
Around one in ten Europeans (11%) admits that they have bought goods or services involving undeclared work in the previous year, while 4% concede that they have themselves received undeclared pay in return for work. Furthermore, one in 30 (3%) was paid partly in cash by his or her employer ("envelope wages").
All Member States have adopted measures to implement Directive 2008/104/EC on temporary agency work and have in general done so correctly and applied its provisions in practice. These are the main findings of a report just published by the European Commission.
