EU gender legislation has helped tackle workplace discrimination – new report

genderEU legislation has benefited workers through broader protection against discrimination based on gender and clearer definitions of discrimination, says a European Commission report adopted on the 29/07/2009. Implementation of Directive 2002/73/EC has generally been satisfactory, although not all countries have yet brought their rules into line with EU requirements. The report identifies the main problems and good practices in implementing the Directive, which aims to promote equal treatment for men and women in access to employment, vocational training and promotion, and working conditions.

Free movement of workers is good for Europe's economy

ESF-European Social FundA European Commission report published today shows that mobile workers from the countries that joined the EU in 2004 and 2007 have had a positive impact on Member States' economies and have not led to serious disturbances on their labour markets. Workers from the EU-8 as well as Bulgaria and Romania have made a significant contribution to sustained economic growth, without significantly displacing local workers or driving down their wages. Both for the EU as a whole and for most individual countries, labour flows have been limited compared to the size of labour markets and to inflows from non-EU countries.
