Public consultation on ELA and ESSN


EU Commission started a public consultation on the planned European Labour Authority and on the European Social Security Number.

According to the Commission’s press release, “The European Labour Authority should ensure that EU rules on labour mobility are enforced in a fair, simple and effective way. Concretely, building on existing structures, the Authority would support national administrations, businesses, and mobile workers by strengthening cooperation at EU level on matters such as cross-border mobility and social security coordination. It would also improve access to information for public authorities and mobile workers and enhance transparency regarding their rights and obligations“.

The European Social Security Number (ESSN) “would facilitate the identification of persons across borders for the purposes of social security coordination and allow the quick and accurate verification of their social security insurance status. It would facilitate administrative procedures for citizens by optimising the use of digital tools“.

Proclamation of the European Pillar of Social Rights

During the Social Summit held on 17 November 2017 EU leaders proclaimed the European Pillar of Social Rights in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The Pillar which was first presented by the EU Commission in April 2017, outlines 20 key principles and rights related to employment and welfare, divided into three categories, such as the requirements of equal opportunities and access to the labour market; fair working conditions; furthermore, social protection and inclusion. Although the Pillar is not a legally binding document, will definitely have impact to the employment law and to the labour market.
