Commission presents European Pillar of Social Rights


On 26 April 2016, the Commission adopted its proposal for the European Pillar for Social Rights. The Pillar sets out 20 principles and rights to ensure well-functioning and fair labour markets and welfare systems in three different areas: equal opportunities and access to the labour market, fair working conditions and social protection and inclusion.

The initiative sheds lights on the main challenges and how to address them. As most of the tools to deliver on the Pillar belong to the Member States, the social partners, and the civil society, the European institutions will mainly focus on setting the framework and leading the way forward for the implementation of the Pillar. Having said this, the Commission also proposed some legislative and non-legislative measures, as well as a social scoreboard to monitor the implementation of the Pillar by tracking performances and trends across the EU countries.
