Commission's proposal to increase transparency and predictability of working conditions
The Commission's proposal for a Directive on transparent and predictable working conditions is part of the initiatives accompanying the Proclamation of the European Pillar of Social Rights. It sets out new rights for all workers and will serve in particular to combat cases of insufficient protection for workers in non-standard forms of employment.
New rules in the Commission proposal are e.g.:
- probation (if any);
- training provided by employer;
- arrangements and remuneration for overtime
- information on working time for workers on very variable schedules;
- social security institution where contributions are paid
